SPECIES: Circus Aeruginosus (lat.) // Eurasian Marsh Harrier (en.) // Erete de Stuf (ro.)

COMMENTS: I shoot this on a hill near Sacalaia natural reserve. This is the only time when I shoot this species from the top so i wasn't sure if I identified correctly the bird, because feather color look strange to my beginner eye. So I've consulted with a friend and he confirmed me that it is a buzzard.

@LATER EDIT: thank you nardophoto for opening my eyes. you can read the story in my response.

This one is Marsh Harrier (Circus aeruginosus) and not Buteo buteo.
