Although in velavadar they are protected there are other places where they still sometimes are considered pest destroying crop and usually farmers have licenses to kill them.

Sunset at Velavadar

Photographed this Harrier at sunset sitting on a acacia tree at Velavadar Sanctuary in Gujarat, unfortunately it was already late for the park gate timings and I had to do with just a quick shot. Apart from blackbucks, Neelgai, Wolfs, Hyenna this park is the worlds largest communal roosting site for Harriers. Photographed using a d300+200-400vr+monopod.
