Northern Harrier over Redtail Lake

Redtail Lake is next to the Columbia River just to the north of the levee. It is known to have a wide variety of ducks, geese, Virginia Rails, and American Bitterns. Photographers can position theirselves on its bridge to shoot Bald Eagles, Harriers, Peregrine Falcons, Kestrels, Merlins and occasional Short-eared Owls that frequent the area.
