Male Northern Harrier on patrol

Taken back in January on a very cold afternoon. This handsome guy was hunting the roadside, looking for a meal and was kind enough to give me a number of nice captures. The male Northern Harrier is nicknamed the Gray Ghost, due to its color and its knack for staying hidden.

You’ll find Harriers across much of North America, Europe and Asia depending on the season. Here we call them Northern Harriers but in other spots on the globe they are known as Hen Harriers, Harrier Hawks or Marsh Hawks.
