I had to travel to northwestern New Nersey to give a presentation on rifle tuning on Saturday and the trip took us through Liberty Marsh. So, on the way home we stopped to see what we could see. It was a cool, clear day with harsh light. We saw swans, a female northern harrier, a female sharp shinned hawk, ring neck ducks, red head ducks, mallards, ring billed gulls, and five red tail hawks, three of the hawks buzzed close over our heads and one landed on the power line close to us. He studied a photographer friend very closely and suddenly launched from the wire and flew directly at him and almost planted his talons his skull. Some of the pictures turned out well.
