Northern Harrier (Circus cyaneus) Male
Photo taken by my companion with the XSi and tele.
My first impression when I saw him alongside the road was that he looked very white. Like a seagull, but obviously not a seagull.
Although common around here, I think this is the first time I've ever seen a male.
He flew away and we followed him with the car and then he actually started flying toward us. That's when we got this photo.
He was more intent on his prey than our vehicle, evidently. It pays to be persistent sometimes.
