Great Harrier shots Charles.
I found it (relatively) easy to photograph them, cause they have regular flight patterns.
Then again, this one is super-sharp.

Charles: Great pictures of the Northern Harriers. Glad all the pieces fit together.
I too have had little luck with them. There are plenty of them out in the fields but they always seem to be too far away or facing the wrong direction. Last week I saw one hovering not very far from my car. I hop out with camera and just as I was about to shoot, a crow comes out of nowhere and scares it away. Red-shouldered Hawks and Eagles seem much more cooperative!

This morning I had a wonderful encounter with a female Northern Harrier (aka Hen Harrier in Europe). Hitherto, all my experience with this species has been to photograph their rear end after they have flown past me. Today, it all changed. I met the bird below hunting (very successfully if I might add) in a nearby field.
