Northern Harrier flying photo
Northern Harrier,   Photo Image # NOHA 0075

The rich colors in this juvenile Northern Harrier photo show off while banking in flight. The facial disc of this hawk can also be seen, similar to an owl's, and enhances the Northern Harrier's ability to locate prey by sound. Northern Harriers are usually seen flying low and slow over their hunting territory with wings held in a slight V shape.
