Harrier Food FIght

Reier and I had the great fortune to see a female Northern Harrier risk life and limb to bring food in to her rather enthusiastic youngsters. We saw her fly across the road with food clearly in her feet. Her two juvenile young met her with a flurry of vocalizing, feet and wings. She finally dropped the lunch she had brought in, and both youngsters carried the squabbling into the pasture. She flew off to find something else to feed her young. Gotta love a parent who almost gets torn to bits and keeps going back for more.
