Northern Harrior on the Hunt

I was able to get out for a day of birding last week this Harrior was just one of many great birds I saw. The Harrers were flying low over the ponds, and marshes all day long. Whenever they were near overhead the Snow Geese, White-Fronted Geese, Ibis, and Coots would take to the sky. The noise was amazing to hear.
Late in the afternoon we saw a Harrier chasing a Snow Goose, the goose dived into the marsh grass with the Harrier in hot pursuit! We waited with anticipation to see if the Harrier would come up with the Goose. He did not! That was one lucky goose.
