New Bird Photographed – Northern Harrier

Northern Harrier (juvenile)

If this looks familiar, it’s because last month I got a photo of a northern harrier at the Shawangunk Grasslands.  However, yesterday’s hike at Peach Hill Park got my first photo in Dutchess County!

It was actually quite a surprise to see one at Peach Hill after hiking this area for years.  It caught me off guard when it made it’s first appearance, but once I knew it was around, I was a little more prepared.

Thankfully, when I made my way up to the summit, he made a second appearance, and despite cloudy skies, I was able to get a clear enough photo to properly ID it.

This now puts me at 141 species of birds that I’ve photographed in Dutchess County, New York!
