Three birds of prey (Spain) (1 Viewer)


Sergio López Martín
Hello everyone. I found these three different birds today in Guadalajara (Spain). The area included mostly crop fields, with some bushes, although there were some pine trees too.

Number 1 looks like Aquila adalberti to me.

Some people have told me number 2 could be Accipiter gentilis.

Some people have told me number 3 could be Accipiter nisus, although I don't feel like the colour really matches for me.

Used to be well known! 😎
Agree with Tom on all 3

# 3 Also appears to be quite short necked with relatively narrow hips and a pinched tail base.
