A female marsh hawk – also known as a northern harrier – made a visit to our yard today. It was pouring rain at the time, and the bird was soaked. It was sitting in a tree for quite some time, long enough for me to get the camera set up to take a picture. Of course, the minute I am ready to take the shot, she flies a little farther off, making for an even more difficult shot, considering all the rain and trees between the hawk and me. Still, I managed to get one picture before it began raining so hard that a clearer picture would not possible.
