A Harrier and a Bobcat

Went out hoping to photograph the local Burrowing Owl yesterday, but had no luck.  There has been a second year (?) Northern Harrier at the spot every time I've been there, though.  I got some photos, although they're nothing to rave about.  On my drive back I saw a bobcat about twenty meters off the road.  I went to take some photos, and spent about twenty minutes stalking this elusive little fellow before successfully getting any photos.  Luckily one came out.

Thinking SY based on adult gray feathers along with retained brown first-winter plumage. Adventitiously molting S1 and maybe S2.
