News from the Aspromonte National Park 1

Two days ago a probable hybrid between Black and Red Kite has been observed. That bird showed intermediate charactestics between the two species,  it was very pale in the lower plumage and had a reddish tail. That bird passed over the peaks of Aspromonte and was observed at the watchpoint called "Nino Martino" (see the picture below).
Yesterday about 400 Honey Buzzards migrated at the site together with an Egyptian vulture and one Short-toed Snake Eagle.
