|Hen Harrier Circus cyaneus
|Monfragüe NP, Spain
The Hen Harrier breeds in grasslands, steppes and similar open country across Europe and Asia and, while some western populations are resident, most migrate south to northern Africa, the Middle East and south Asia during the northern winter. See the distribution map at Birdlife International.
|These photos of a male show the broad black tips to the wings and the darker trailing edge. The wings are broader than both Montagu's Harrier C. pygargus and Pallid Harrier C. macrourus.|
