Love those ospreys, CTJohn!  How close was the nest and situated where?

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 )

Awesome images everyone!

The Oriental Skylark (Alauda gulgula), also known as the Oriental Lark or Small Skylark, is a species of skylark found in the Indian Subcontinent and Southeast Asia. Like other skylarks, it is found in open grassland - often near waterbodies - where it feeds on seeds and insects.

These skylarks frequently rocket up into the sky, fluttering and singing before descending down to earth. Male Oriental Skylarks may also hover in the air and sing, in order to attract a mate.

Oriental Skylarks are about 16 cm long. They have streaked, yellow-brown upper plumage, with white outer tail feathers and a short crest. Both sexes are similar.
