Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Very small raptor found in open spaces, often perched on a telephone wire or exposed tree. Size alone helps with identification. Even smaller than a kestrel, with unmarked white underparts and gray back. Also look for buffy forehead and cheek and rusty flanks. Sexes alike. Usually seen singly around open fields.
