Observation details

"Revisited harrier's nest at Opaki. Three young birds were crouching on side of nest and one scrambled out when I approached and hopped away, going several yards. I caught it and replaced it. Wing and tail feathers now fairly well grown. Saw remains of a rabbit in the nest, a skeleton picked clean and part of a leg. Old bird did not put in an appearance until I was leaving."
