I wrote the comment "Hawks are so impressive in any pose" and then saw you called it a buzzard. So, once again I checked it out and found this: "In the Old World, members of this genus are called "buzzards", but "hawk" is used in North America. Thanks for the photos and for making me dig. Beautiful birds.
