The Northern Harrier
is a large raptor with an amazing wing-span. While hunting, it glides low over grass covered marshy areas. The dark colored adult raptor is easily identified by it’s white rump.
Recently, I saw a Northern Harrier glide along the edge of Long Pond at the Humboldt Bay National Wildlife refuge. You can find them here: https://www.fws.gov/refuge/humboldt_bay/
As it flew, the beautiful bird dipped down occasionally to check something in the low-growing brush. When it landed, the Harrier blended in perfectly with its surroundings, only to be seen again when taking flight.
When you are out there, you will see the Northern Harrier is a large raptor with an amazing wing-span.
