I captured these two Northern Harriers squabbling over a half eaten fish in the Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area (FBWMA) near Bountiful Utah. The area is located just North of Utah’s Great Salt Lake and is filled with many different species of birds. I was actually looking to photograph bald eagles on this trip since this is an area where many of them spend the winter months. All of the eagles I spotted were too far away for a decent photo, so I spent my time watching the harriers.
