The western marsh harrier is a large harrier, a bird of prey from temperate and subtropical western Eurasia and adjacent Africa. It is also known as the Eurasian marsh harrier.

Formerly, a number of relatives were included in ''C. aeruginosus'', which was then known as "marsh harrier". The related taxa are now generally considered to be separate species: the eastern marsh harrier and the possibly distinct Papuan harrier spilothorax'') of eastern Asia and the Wallacea, the swamp harrier.. more
