Northern harrier

Took a break from work and walked Star to some friends’ house about a mile away. On the way, passed several fields. In one, a northern harrier cruised low, looking for voles and mice. Unmistakable markings; with so much white, maybe a female. She flew quickly about four feet off the ground (typical harrier behavior), then lifted above the trees and was gone.
