MARSH HAR­RIER

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month October -

No­tably big­ger than Hen Har­ri­ers, the chunky Marsh Har­rier can even be mis­taken for the much bulkier Buz­zard at a dis­tance. Fe­males are larger, and are dark brown with golden shoul­ders and heads. Ju­ve­niles re­sem­ble fe­males, but usu­ally lack the golden shoul­ders. The smaller males are pale grey and brown, with grey tails, and grey in the wings, plus white rumps. Usu­ally found in wet­ter habi­tats than Hen Har­ri­ers.
