    Poland, Warsaw, 02.11, (un)common buzzard?

    Longer wings and tail than I would perhaps expect. Rough-legged? (Taken with a smartphone, so apologies for quality.)

    This Buzzard flew to the back fence this morning, while we were both watching, it appeared to be chasing a smaller bird and gave up. The sat on the fence long enough for me to get the camera and grab several shots, wonderful

    Juvenile Buzzard?

    Hi all. It turns out that harvesting brings out the birds of prey, I guess it flushes out all sorts of critters. I watched this bird on the ground for quite some time before three Red Kites turned up and either wanted its meal or didn't like its company. That said, I'm not sure what the bird is...

    Photos taken 17th June 2022 at Kerstlingeröder Feld (Göttingen), all of the same individual. Can the bird be IDed to species from these heavily cropped silhouette shots? Thanks! Tom

    Help with ID-ing a Bird of Prey please!

    Hi everyone! I was out on my walk today, in Pensford near Bristol & Bath. I saw a bird and thought he must be either a red kite or buzzard because they're very common here, I got home and got out my RSPB book, but I cannot work out what it was!! I am VERY very new to this, so please don't...

    Buzzard (13th of June, 2022, Amsterdam Netherlands)

    Yesterday evening I saw this presumably Common Buzzard from far away deep into the huge restricted runway areas of Schiphol Airport (Amsterdam). In fact, it was so far away that it couldn't be seen by the naked eye. I only spotted it accidentally through my binos while following a Kestrel flying...

    Trying to identify (Buzzard)

    This one was hovering quit close to the ground (10m-15m ?) above some fields near some houses. While watching it I was quit sure that this must be a common Kestrel. By trying the "Merlin Bird ID"-app though just got suggestions for several Kites (red-kite, black-kite..) but the kestrel not even...

    Although they're not exactly warm and fuzzy, I think turkey vultures are kind of cool - unless you crawl out of bed and find seven them circling over your driveway. (Went outside and did a sniff test; didn't find anything).

    UK buzzard populations 2-3 centuries ago?

    I'm trying to find out the estimated common buzzard Buteo buteo populations in the UK in the 1700s and 1800s, for some coursework I'm doing. So far I've found more than enough of 'the buzzard was widespread until around 1775' and 'in recent years its numbers have increased', but no actual...
