Grey-faced Buzzard breeds in Nanjing?

Posted Thursday 17th July 2008 at 02:49 by mcaribou
On 7,July I went to Nanjing to see Fairy Pittas.Although the babies had left their nests and I found none,I saw two Grey-faced Buzzards(maybe adult) flying about.Usually the buzzard breeds in north and northeast China.We can see them passing here in spring and autumn.Would they stay and breed?This year in Shanghai,Coot,another bird who breeds in the north,stays to breed.

Mcribou,maybe they breed there. Actually, I found several nests of this raptor in Dongzhai (1 in 2006, 1 in 2007 and 2 in 2008).

Yes,there're several records of it every summer in Dongzhai.Its probable breeding in Nanjing needs more observations.
