Friday June 7th, 2013 – Avian Friday: Ms. Majestic

Here is another look at one of the more common hawks found in Washington’s Skagit Valley. This is from my earlier trip up there in March. On this particular afternoon I had hung around a spot known as West90 in hopes of spotting some of the Short-Eared Owls that had been seen in the area. I waited it out until dusk with another photographer friend without much luck on the owls, but the Harriers were quite active and we were fortunate to get some nice light at the end of the day.
