Birds of the Prairie, Part 1

Living in the US heartland, much of our prairie land has been lost to development. However, our remaining prairies can be a fun place to bird and enjoy wildflowers. In Part 1, I will share some of my recent prairie bird images that I have made this winter in several Missouri prairies.

The feature of Part 1 is the Northern Harrier (Circus cyaneus). Where I live, we are just included in the “year round” range for this bird. However, whenever winter sets in, the number of Northern dramatically rises. Please enjoy our Northern , as they hunt our remaining prairies:

Jim, congratulations on an outstanding set of images of this iconic species. The lighting, contrast and sharpness are spot-on. The audio clip brings you right into the picture and you can imagine yourself being out there on the prairie.
