This is a medium size bird that can be found in Asia and Europe. Around 40,000 breeding pairs are present in Britain and they can be there throughout the whole year, but not in those parts that are cold.
The buzzard can be distinguished easily from the other species of hawk by its size, brown plumage with white markings underneath and tremendous height.
The tail can be barred with white patches on the inner side of the wings. The feathers on the neck are usually yellowish and the white color comes after.
