Badlands Harrier

badlands harrierx4Friends, had to take some time away from this blog to visit the North Dakota badlands.  Twice in one year is an unusual event, but also attended my 50th high school reunion then it is only another 150 miles to the badlands.  This is a Northern Harrier gliding over a hilltop and i was able to grab four focused images, i combined them for this composite image.  I would never been able to identify this bird without my experiences on Hawk Ridge last fall.  His brownish feathers say he is an immature bird and f you look closely you can see his owl face.  til Tomorrow MJ
