Genus ARCHIBUTEO

Precisely the same as Buteo, except that the tarsus is feathered in front throughout to the base of the toes, though naked and with large transverse scutellae behind. The distinction is convenient, but is scarcely of generic importance.

Pour nearly allied species are recorded, of which one occurs occasionally in the higher Himalayas.
