    Spain: vulture or not?

    I moved to Rossell (Province of Castellon in Spain), living in the nature next to the mountains of the Natural Parc "Tinenca de Benifassa", and close to the sea. There are a lot of birds of prey living in these mountains, but as a beginner in bird spotting I don't know much about them...

    Bird of Prey / Falcon in Central Spain

    Hello, I saw this yesterday in Central Spain in an area well know for Merlin. It is the only photo I have and it is poor so I don't expect a positive ID but any thoughts and comments would be appreciated. Thx in advance.

    Seen in December - most likely a female but can immature be ruled out? One of the few birds I saw and photographed on a recent non-birding trip to Southern Spain.

    Cordoba, Spain March Chiffchaff and Cettis?

    Having some trouble making the call here...I feel like I saw two different birds. The last bird I spotted near water/bridge area of Cordoba and I'm thinking Cetti's Warbler. Other shots were in the park and I feel like maybe just Chiffchaff?
