Hi I took this picture a couple of years ago when I was in Lisbon it was flying over the city and I only got the one quick chance I had given up hope of identifying it but when did if there were enough distinguishing features for you to tell me if it is a kestrel or maybe (hope) a Lesser?
according to my guide this is a house swallow hirundo tahitca distinguishable from the barn swallowed by a lack of blackish breast band And the dark undertail covered with white scaly like markings.
is this correct. Is it a separate bird? as I can’t find on BUBO IOC listings
Final one I promise but this bird didn’t hang around and I only grabbed a quick couple of shots from a long way off but I wondered if it gave a certain Jizz which may be able to allow identification. It was taken again in northern Costa Rica
