Northern Harriers in Texas

Greetings from Port Aransas, TX

Well, I didn't travel to Texas to see Northern Harriers, however, they have been great fun to watch and photograph.  It is unbelievable how numerous they are along the upper Texas coast; I have seen them practically every time I scan the horizon!  Photographing them is a different story; while they will give some close flybys they are difficult to follow as they are hunting.

Northern Harrier-Look at that look!

The same Northern Harrier hovering over the beach.

Again, the same harrier, just a few seconds after the above shot.
Over the next couple days I will post more about my "Texas" birds.
