Northern Male Harrier

A migratory raptor to my area from November to late April and a very hard raptor to capture! Anyone here having any luck capturing these raptors?

Is this one?  I couldn't ID it.

 Looks like a female Northern Harrier to me. It has that Owl like look.

It's a spot at the lower end of the Everglades, near the Flamingo visitor center.  There's a nest near the boat landing where you can get about 20 feet away.  The ospreys seem to be oblivious to visitors.

Had a Harrier pair nest a few miles from me this year. Got a few picts. The Males seem to be the most difficult target, very shy.

1. Harrier female hunting in fields.
2. Harrier juvenile
3. Harrier male with his kill ( a red winged blackbird nestling )
