This week's featured bird is a common raptor to find low over open fields this time of year - not only does the northern harrier have a wide winter range, but its distinctive white rump is a great mark for birders to easily identify. Occasionally confused for an owl because of its facial disk, this raptor has stunning senses just like owls and it just as much fun to add to a life list.
