Wyoming winter raptor

Recommended Posts

Here's a bird from my recent trip to Montana that I just couldn't put a finger on the ID, for some reason. I'm sure it's probably obvious but my brain just isn't working today.

Somewhere out in the middle of WY, December 17

Apologies in advance for the horrendous photo.

The head seems too dark and small for a harrier.  Looks like a Peregrine Falcon to me.

Peregrine was my original thought as well, but between it being rare and barriers almost looking like that, I figured it would just be a harrier. Though it does look a lot like a Peregrine.
