Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large, long-winged buzzard, may recall a small eagle in size. Variable plumage with three color morphs. All have obvious dark carpal patches at the wrist of the wing. Juveniles lack the adult’s prominent black trailing edge to the wings. Often hunts from a prominent perch, or sitting on the ground in steppe or desert country, sometimes in more wooded areas but always near big open spaces.
