Long-legged Buzzard (Buteo rufinus)

This is another species that is not officially present in Portugal but that occurs here, especially in the southern half of the country, with increasing regularity, and we saw several different Long-legged Buzzards during 2013. A distinctive light outer quarter to the wings is a diagnostic trait as are, of course, the long un-feathered tarsi and dark shorts.
