Northern Harrier male - I hadn't been this close to a male Northern Harrier before. I must have been near the nest because he was trying to encourage me to leave the area by diving towards me. He didn't get real close but it gave me a chance to take some shots. I wish the leaves weren't in front of the wing tips in this shot but I may try to do something with that later.
We will be traveling to visit family for the week so my internet access may be spotty. I hope to get on at least a few times over the next week. Thank you again for all the nice comments.
