Northern Harrier - Dark Morph

5 Feb 2008
Farmington Bay
Davis County

E-mails from Jerry Liguari:
Here are the dark morph Northern Harrier photos. Taken February 5th at Farmington Bay.

...completely dark underneath with paler flight feathers that are banded at the tips. Upperside is blackish with slight grayish sheen and lacked the white 'rump' that normal harriers show. Shape and flight style were identical to Northern Harrier.

The bird was distant and never came close...these are the highest resolution photos cropped that are possible
