Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Distinctive and beautiful raptor of varied semiopen habitats, from woodland to farmland and moorland with hedges and wooded patches; locally in urban areas. Rather distinctive: large, graceful hawk with fairly long, forked, rusty-orange tail. Flies with easy languid wingbeats and lazy glides, circling gracefully over fields and roadsides. Often scavenges with crows.
