Seeing a harrier float by is always an amazing birding experience! This page deals with the two uncommon species that visit Africa in summer: Pallid and Montagu’s. If you’re lucky, it will be an adult male – they are not too difficult to identify, if you get a good luck. But young ones (juveniles) and females are extremely difficult to tell apart. This really is advanced birding – so don’t feel bad if you can’t be sure!
