#33 Northern Harrier
Unique among North American hawks, the Northern Harrier favors marshes and grasslands where it glides low with long V-shaped wings in search of small mammals and birds. Its owl-like face, unhurried flight style, and white rump are telltale field marks. Females are brown and larger than the gray-and-white males.
This patch celebrates HawkWatch International, a non-profit that monitors and safeguards the long-term health of raptors.
