A few days ago, I wandered into Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge for about an hour.  Among the more interesting findings:  a Northern Harrier lunching on an unfortunate rodent.  While s/he was deep in the brush, there was still a small window along the road from which to (morbidly?) watch...

S/he fed for about 5 minutes, ripping little bits and larger chunks, while watching the surrounding countryside and airspace for competitors...  It was a sight that was repeated several times during that hour...
