Those adult males usually spot me first and avoid me, were you in a blind of some sort? Good shooting.

Photography is my only pathological addiction; hopefully it won't drive me to something worse. :rolleyes: :oops:

harriers are shy here too. This one just happened to fly by as I was shooting kites out of the car.

Bob, are the male somewhat rare, compared to female sightings, in Florida, too? Just curious. The "Birding Lady", resident expert in Port A, got real excited when the one I saw flew over.

they certainly are not as common and make the heart race a bit when they fly close. I really think it's because females and immature males look alike. same is true for snail kites and painted buntings plus I'm sure a host of other birds
