Under Prairie Skies
I have seen this female Northern Harrier almost every time I drive this stretch of gravel road in Stanley County, South Dakota. Ususually I observe her actively hunting over the prairie. Earlier this week I found her perched on a fence post as if she were an over-sized meadowlark. She did not like me invading her space, and flew off just after I took her picture. She certainly lives in a beautiful place, doesn't she?
