Hail Hunters

"We'll be here for awhile."

Choosing wide open unbroken ricefields to circle around and within, they glide low and slow, sometimes landing on flimsy rice plants and vanish amongst the tall reeds.

1. Pied harrier, female.
2. Eastern Harrier, female
3. Pied Harrier, female. male is seen making rounds even further.
4. Western Harrier? Female

Remaining in ricefields all day long. Possibly three species at once, and in family groups of male, female and juveniles. At dusk, all would actively take to the field simultaneously, numbering at least 8.
