On Tuesday, September 29, I witnessed two harriers cartwheeling over golden cornfields next to Hwy 10, just north of the Hwy 7 roundabout in Watertown Township.  They were only about 30 feet off the ground.

What I've read explains this as a mating behavior, so I was surprised to see it at this time of year.

I'd appreciate further input from local birders.
