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
