[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a Raptor long wings, long legs and short head, with a characteristic undulating flight pattern when hovering high over the small and dense undergrowth.
In this species, as in blue-harrier and harrier-hunter, the female is noticeably different the male. In this case, both exhibit shoulders and neck paler than the remainder body, similar to pattern that the Iberian imperial eagle-presents. The male, however, has the wings with gray the dark edge, and the tail is also gray, while the female pattern is more uniformly brown-red escuro. The Marsh-harrier is distributed discontinuously along the wetlands and low abundances, and an uncommon species in our territory. Some individuals winter on between us, increasing slightly the number of staff but most are resident, remaining throughout the year in Portugal.
