Adult Male Northern Harrier

This was the first adult male Harrier I've seen in a few months. I thought I might just see his white rump from behind as he flew past but something caught his eye and he turned to face me. It was only a fleeting look as he continued on his way and I haven't seen him since. Generally you see the males more often in the early Spring as they migrate back to establish nesting territory. This one seems too early to be a Spring migrant and so probably over-wintered here. February 21 near Matthew's Lake.
