Eurasian Hobby

Falco subbuteo

This extremely rare vagrant from Asia has been found only a handful of times in the islands from widely scattered times during the spring, summer, and fall. Based on local records and other sightings from the region this species should be sought during the fall in September and early October, though the end of May and June have also produced many regional records and is another likely period for future sightings.
