[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Common Buzzard (Buteo buteo) is a medium to large bird of prey, whose range covers most of Europe and extends into Asia. It is usually resident all year, except in the coldest parts of its range, and in the case of one subspecies.The Common Buzzard measures between 40 and 58 cm (16 and 23 in) in length with a 109136 cm (4354 in) wingspan and a body mass of 4271,364 g (0.943.01 lb), making it a medium-sized raptor.[2][3]

This broad-winged raptor has a wide variety of plumages, and in Europe can be confused with the similar Rough-legged Buzzard (Buteo lagopus) and the only distantly related Honey Buzzard (Pernis apivorus), which mimics the Common Buzzard's plumage for a degree of protection from Northern Goshawks[citation needed]. The plumage can vary in Britain from almost pure white to black, but is usually shades of brown, with a pale 'necklace' of feathers.

Hello Bartha,
The colorful patterns shown from the underside of it's wings are very beautiful indeed. It's funny, but when I think of a buzzard here in the States I automatically invision a bird with no feathers on it's head. The buzzards from your area reminds me more of our hawks.
This particular one has such a gorgeous looking plumage, and you managed to capture it wonderfully.
