I think this bird was the one I liked the best when it comes to raptors. It was a lifer to me and it was so beautiful. and, for once, easily recognizable. Even in a distanze you could recognize it on the tail and how it worked the tail. I loved it. It can only be found in the southern part of Sweden. So I was glad to see it.

  3. Even better for you when its a life bird :0

    I am fairly lucky that I can travel a few hours away to a feeding station and see upto 400 birds including a leucistic bird that shows very white plumage
