Another Long-winged Harrier in Tocumen, a report by Ken Allaire

Alfred Raab, Marc and Joanie Hubsinger and I found a Long-winged Harrier on Sunday at about 1:00, completely by coincidence as we had not read Kilo's post. Alfred and Marc both obtained excellent photo documentation, which will be posted at their earliest opportunity. But our bird was definitely a light-morph male, not a dark-morph as Kilo described— our photos prove this conclusively.

We also got close to a couple of rice fields and I had an all-too-brief look at a Spotted Rail in a small patch of irrigated rice.
