rounded edge to their wings with smaller fingers and have a 4 foot
Buzzards are very territorial and will attack any invading buzzards
on their territory.
Their habitat ranges from open flat farmland to steep hills and
mountains. Nest sites can be both in trees and rocky cliff ledges.

poultry. I find this highly unlikely, as buzzards are lazy and would
much rather eat an easy meal like carrion.
