Northern Harriers Are Migrating Now, Be On the Lookout!

Northern Harrier, photographed from our deck, here in NH

Just had a Northern Harrier fly over our fields here in NH, plus a Sharp-shinned Hawk, despite the rain. Hawk migration is still going on. Broad-winged Hawks have mainly cleared out of New England, but Sharp-shinned, Cooper's and Red-tailed Hawks as well as American Kestrels, Merlins, and more are still coming. Harriers course low over fields, looking for rodents, so they stop by our property, which has large fields, viewable from our deck. Northern Harriers breed across the upper two-thirds of North America and winter across approximately the southern two-thirds.
Have a great weekend and see some birds!
