Brief Summary

Read full entry
Do you ever see a hen harrier in the Netherlands? Then you are very fortunate! These beautiful birds are having a very difficult time surviving in this country. They are only found in just a few places in this country and their numbers keep dropping. It is unknown why this is happening, but is probably due to a lack of food. Just like the marsh harrier, hen harriers have a shallow V-shaped silhouette as they scan the ground for prey or glide low over the ground. They sleep and nest on the ground.
