I have been lucky to find a spot where a male northern harrier, (aka the "Gray Ghost") has been courting a female, and consistently hunting the same section of abandoned railroad tracks along the bay marshlands.

Beautiful bird, and great shots. I know how hard it is to get the whole bird in the frame when it's moving.
