Ravens s Buzzards (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
According to this photographer, http://www.flickr.com/photos/bcc233/4000989800/, (not that he/she captured it), that Buzzards raid Raven's nests. How true is that? Of course if any BOP saw an easy meal they will go for it but is this something which can occur regularly or more frequently that I would assume?

I always thought the reverse would be more likely. Ravens do mob quite viciously so I thought that would put Buzzards off.

What have forum members seen themselves and read from other sources?
Someone from another forum posted an account sometime ago regarding a buzzard which acctually barrel rolled and grab a corvid in its talons.
The raven looks larger.
