This bird of prey was spotted on a balcony of an apartment block in Nerja.  Unfortunately it is not a free bird but is tethered to prevent it flying away.

I don’t know who owns it nor why they have it but perhaps it is used for hunting or displays.

Does anyone know what kind of bird this is?

I have an answer. Ian from http://www.birdwatchalpujarras.com is almost certain it is a Harris Hawk USA which is not subject to European legislation controlling the captivity of species from Europe. Apparently this bird does respond to training, but I am sure it would be happier flying free
