This wonderful bird, in order to escape a maruading crow, landed on the track right in front of me. Using the open door of my 4-wheeler as a hide, I got a few shots. It then took off, flew directly towards me, hovered a couple of times and then passed no more than 10 feet from me - in total silence. Magic!
