Hi birders,

I'm a great sceptic of the "regular" reports of papuan harriers that come
from the Tablelands. So far, no-one has manged to circulate a description
of one that even appreciates, much less dispenses with the problem of dark
hooded young Spotted Harriers. Anyone who sees a pied harrier should take
carefull note of features like wing barring, jizz, and other features as
discussed in Hanzab.
