Bubo bubo & Buteo buteo

Hi,

We know that the Eurasian Eagle Owl (Bubo bubo) is a super predator reigning on the top of the food chain with no serious enemies as adults, feeding on hundreds of different species, including other birds of prey. Among them, there is the Common Buzzard (Buteo buteo).

The questions are, was an Eagle Owl attacking a Common Buzzard ever filmed or photographed ? And was a Common Buzzard chasing an Eagle Owl ever filmed or photographed ? If so, please link to the document (photo, film, author, article).

Could you provide the names of top leading scientists studying the Eagle Owl, not about genetics, physiology, etc., but about ethology or ecology. This would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.



PS: the question was also asked in the "Birds of Prey" section but got no reply after some 150 views, so just try here.

Yes, it has been filmed. Try researching the most popular sites eg YouTube.

Hi PYRTLE,

Thanks so much for the link, great finding ! Found a few other interesting videos.

Now I have to find the other way: Common Buzzard chasing an Eagle Owl. I did capture the scene, but have no idea if it is something original or not.
