While watching Northern Harriers hunting in adjacent fields, this Meadowlark perched on a wire above me and sang me a song.

Northern Harrier

We parked along a road on the south edge of town this morning to see if some local Harriers would do a show for us. They did. There were two or three hunting adjacent fields in their usual manner - flying low over fields and ambushing prey of opportunity. This one slammed on his brakes when he spoted a meal.
