Quiz birds: 4 Mystery Raptors

Eilat, late March 2012

Much to share on Arctic Norway and Israel. Perhaps do some alternate posts for a while. So for now a little quiz photo– just for fun.

Raptor migration is truly remarkable in southern Israel. I took this shot early one morning in the Eilat mountains. 4 species present flying close together.

What do you think they are?

    ad. greater spotted eagle + 3 long legged buzzard?

  2. from right to left – Long-legged Buzzard, Bonelli’s Eagle, Spotted Eagle and ………dunno? Honey Buzzard? I’ll have another look after more wine!

  3. Red kite, black kite, long legged buzzard and an eagle – can’t be sure bout any! 😉

  4. Harry Hussey says:

    left to right: Black Kite, adult type Steppe Eagle (this is a “best guess” scenarion given the slight lack of clarity making a lot of features hard to evaluate), Marsh Harrier (hidden behind the eagle) and adult “Steppe Buzzard” (vulpinus).

    Should have read “scenario”, of course!

    Black Kite, Steppe Buzzard and Booted Eagle in background… As for the big Aquila, I am never any good at those.. Steppe Eagle?

  7. Boo hiss! I hate raptors (identifying them I mean!). But – my guess would be (L to R): Black Kite, Great Spotted, Bonelli’s and Long-legged Buzzard

  8. PS The ‘Bonelli’s’ might be Booted!

  9. I’m not much of a raptor man, but I almost agree with Dave: Black Kite, Greater Spotted Eagle, Booted Eagle en vulpinus Buzzard.
