Common Buzzard Along the Highway Nis - Budapest Common Buzzard - Buteo buteo<br />
On our trip to Germany we passed through Serbia and Hungary. And along the highway we saw at least 100 buzzards. Each couple of kilometres one or two of them perched on fence poles watching for moles and mice. I don&rsquo;t know how many time I pulled over trying to take a shot. It was so frustrating. They are used to the passing autos, but if an auto stops nearby they immediately fly away. Anyway, me and my wife, we both made endless attempts to shoot some of them and took about 40-50 successful photos. <br />

  1. I know the feeling. I often see a new bird here but as soon as I stop they are gone. That is why I never managed to get a shot of an owl and I still wonder how on earth people do it.
    Here we get lots of raptors I might post them soon, gotta ID them first.

The common buzzard is a medium-to-large bird of prey, whose range covers most of Europe and extends into Asia. It is usually resident year-round, except in the coldest parts of its range, and in the case of one subspecies.
