Set B4 - Bird Portraits - card information

34. Buzzard

34. Buzzard

This large bird of prey is increasing in numbers, its chief strongholds being in Wales, the West Country, the Lake District and Scotland. On or near the ground it appears a heavy, slow bird, but when it soars high its flight is beautiful and graceful. Small mammals, insects, and sometimes carrion, are its food. It nests in trees and on ledges of cliffs and crags. A bulky nest is made, and even after the young are hatched fresh green leaves are sometimes added, as if for decoration.
