I think that this is not a Steppe Buzzard, even if that is the most common taxa there. The variation of Steppe Buzzard is enormous, that is a well-known fact, but we will have hard time when trying...

The point of the story was that a Peregrine hunted like a small falcon, when it had a clear chance to get a small meal. Hobbies and Merlins regularly patrol the same area during autumn and take their...
