Question:
Where does a marsh hawk live? What are some of their enemies?


Replies:
Northern harrier is now the preferred name of what has in the past been known as a marsh hawk. They are open country birds, widespread across most of North America, though never really common, in prairie, savannah, wet meadow and marsh land. Like most higher order predators, they have few direct enemies.
