Tweeters,

I headed out to Theler Wetlands this morning for some photography.
While there, I met Mark Edell, another regular visitor and photographer.
For those of you unfamiliar with Theler, waterfowl hunting is allowed
on a Wildlife area adjacent to the Theler Wetlands. There are three
blinds facing the canal and hunters regularly boat through the wetlands
from a small boat ramp to the blinds. Yesterday morning Mark said he
heard shots, then saw a Northern Harrier come from the direction of the
blinds, apparently shot by a hunter. He has given me permission to post
this link to the bird

Showing it with an injured wing. He has reported the incident to the
authorities.
