Northern Harrier

Friend Sharon and I made a road trip to SW Minnesota on Saturday.  Saw great birds!  A highlight was this female Northern Harrier.  We were on a trail in a restored prairie area near a visitor's center when the bird starting flying towards us.  From her behavior, we were obviously close to a nest.  We did take a few photos but tried not to stress the bird out too much by our presence.
