Photo of the Day

Those owl-faced Northern Harriers, formerly known as marsh hawks, are among the raptors and other migratory birds that will be rolling through the Lower Susquehanna River Watershed during the next couple of days.  A cold front is presently passing through the region and gusty northwest winds will follow.  This could be one of the best flights of the season, so make plans now to go to a hawk watch site atop a local ridge.  Don’t forget your field glasses!  And remember to click the “Hawkwatcher’s Helper: Identifying Bald Eagles and other Raptors” tab at the top of this page for a photo gallery of the vulture, hawk, eagle, and falcon species your likely to observe.
