    Dead bird- Central Spain, end of March 2012

    This bird was found dead by a former riverkeeper, who handle to me this photo when he retired this year. I think it is a Spotted Crake but would like opinions of people more used to this group. This is the only photograph available. The bird was found close to a river with plenty of reeds...

    Best site for Spanish Imperial Eagle in the Madrid area

    There are several places not far from Madrid where it should be not very difficult to find it: just to say a few the Dehesa Boyal near San Sebastián de los Reyes, the Dehesa de Sacedón and Camino de la Zarzuela (both between Sevilla la Nueva and Villaviciosa de Odón, along Guadarrama river)...
