Saw this in Delta, BC today. ID?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone ID this bird we saw in Delta, BC this morning? We tried Merlin on the image, but it thought it was a pigeon.

Welcome to Whatbird!  I agree with CoastieBirder that's a male Northern Harrier, with gray upperparts, white around the eye, white upper-tail coverts, and a long tail with a dark band near the tip.  Standing on the ground (without any food in his talons) is consistent with that.
