I saw the female Harrier as it flew from Inyo County into Tulare (?) County, over Mt. Whitney. I don't know if this is unusal or not but I haven't seem a Harrier at this elevation before. There are lots of high, grassy plateaus nearby. Meanwhile, the summit Rosy Finches were eating out of people's hands, like usual.
