Wayward Brahminy a further note
Hi all again, since posting my earlier note I
have had a look at some illustrations of various phases of the Long-legged
Buzzard in Robson, courtesy of Terry Pacey.
Again, the upper mandible length
shown in these is much shorter than on our bird at Caloote. It is a very
long upper mandible, light yellow in colour, no dark/black tip. In fact
looks a bit abnormal.
