Northern Harrier at Great Marsh, Mason Neck NWR

It was great to see this female Northern Harrier flying over the Marsh. She didn't fly low or hover, just some soaring circles. My reference works say this is typical migration flight. You can see the owl-like facial disks. Some think the harrier uses sound to help find their prey.
