Female Northern Harrier enforces the No Passing Zone

Driving along north of Denver International Airport this past Sunday my son and I come across a hawk perched on top of the sign. I was unable to tell what kind it was so we pull over and I point my camera at it to get a better look. Just as I lift my camera up, my son yells, “Incoming! Here comes another!”

Quickly I squeezed off a couple of captures as a female Northern Harrier takes a swipe at the first hawk, chasing it off. None of the pictures came out great but this one isn’t too bad and is a fun and unique capture.

Oh, and that first hawk? It was a Rough-legged Hawk, a raptor that spends summers in the Arctic, winters in the lower 48.
