ROUGH-LEGGED BUZ­ZARD

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

Sim­i­lar to the Buz­zard, but most of­ten paler and dis­tin­guished by the largely white tail (with a black ter­mi­nal band), dark, belly patch and big dark carpal patches on the un­der­wing, and longer wings and tail giv­ing them a more har­rier like flight pro­file. Will of­ten hover as a ha­bit­ual hunt­ing strat­egy, but be­ware that many Buz­zards also do this.
