    Default Long Shot CAn anyone ID a Fairey Gordon Bird Strike in 1934 ?

    It is mentioned here

    http://www.int-birdstrike.org/Athens...27%20WPI-2.pdf

    I suspect it happened between Sept 12 and Nov 27 1934 but definitely between July and Dec 1934

    I suspect Middle East or India

    Thank

    Paul

    Hi Paul

    Now I know we're pretty good on here, but asking for the identity of the bird???... That's a tough one!!!

    I suspect a if India it was either a Vulture Pseudogyps bengalensis or Long-billed Griffon Gyps indicus

    If Middle East the Egyptian Vulture Neophron percnopterus

    May also be a Buzzard or Hawk Kite

    Hi all, I do not want to offend anyone but this Paul's "ornithology corner" makes me smile:-)
    On the other hand it is a nice example how detailed research our members are doing and how wide range of knowledge is necessary.
