Nice photo, but it is a Black Vulture, Coragyps atratus, not a buzzard. :roflmao3[1]: dbThe Common Buzzard (Buteo buteo) is a medium to large bird of prey, whose range covers most of Europe and extends into Asia. It is typically between 51-57 cm in length with a 110 to 130 cm (48-60 inch) wingspan, making it a medium-sized raptor.Posted Image

Did you know that a buzzard can smell better than a blood hound.

I've been around more than a few wet hounds. A buzzard just might smell better. :signbummer8tl:

They hear pretty good too, when I was thinning that ranch regularly where SJ took that pic the Turkey Vultures (we call them buzzards) would show up in force right after we started shooting. Also some Redtail Hawks would show up occasionally. Problem with the avian predators is that they really put the rodents down. Up in Cedarville the Balds, Hawks and Seagulls really eat up those butterflied Belding Ground squirrels. In Alaska they call Balds buzzards. :signbummer8tl:
