Arosuohaukka

Pallid Harrier ( Circus macrourus ) adult male. 3.5.2009, Tornio.

 

Today evening got my first pics from this beautiful rare visitor here....Tommi send me sms message about the bird wondering that I might be anyway quite far but as an accident I was only 500 meters from him so it took me just some 30 seconds to get there:)

 

Differences to Hen Harrier (common here) are slight but actually easy to see if You know what to look...
