Birds on a Wire: Northern Harrier

Harrier Hawks also like wide open fields -- including our desert grasslands. Harrier Hawks have a different face than other hawks. It is very "owl-like."  It feeds mainly on small mammals either from a perch (like a wire fence), a lone tree, or searching from the air relatively close to the ground.

It too, winters here in Southern Arizona.

And, here too, a photo from San Rafael Valley in Southern Arizona:
