The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Info, just in case. Buzzards are not in the USA. Buzzards are closely related to Red-tailed Hawks, though.

Buzzards are Buteo buteo. Red-tailed Hawks are Buteo jamaicensis. :wave:

Thank you, Chimega. It is good if you can learn something new :2thumbsup:
So I was wrong :slap:
I saw a "buzzard" again yesterday and for the first time I had doubts whether it was one. The tail feathers longer than a buzzard.

It's ok, hon. No harm done. When I first saw Buzzards, I was very interested because they look so much like our Red-tailed Hawks, yet somehow different, too. I love them all.

A little bit of advise, just because some people in the USA are confused. :laugh:
Many people, here, call Turkey Vultures, Buzzards. LOL. This stems from long, long ago when settlers first came here and saw the Vultures. They didn't know what to call them so they called them Buzzards. This is still causing confusion, here, in so many ways and so many people still don't know they're looking at a Vulture, not a true Buzzard. :thumbs:

This bird you saw was probably the same Hawk I saw and shot video of. Red-tailed Hawks are very confusing and I am trying so very hard to learn more. There are different races of Red-tailed Hawks. In fact, there are so many races of them, I can't tell them all for sure. I have to go to the raptor experts for that and even then, sometimes they disagree. Plus sometimes, the different races interbreed which makes IDing them even harder. LOL

Red-tailed Hawks and Buzzards are both buteos. We have quite a few different types of buteos, here. Then there are the accipiters of which the Cooper's Hawks, Sharp-shinned Hawks, various types and subspecies of Goshawks belong to this family. And then we have all the different Falcons. And different types of Eagles.

It's all so fascinating to me and I am constantly learning and studying. This is the most excellent website, ever. I know one of the men who created it and helped develop the free app we can download for our mobile phones, both iPhones and androids so you may want to download that on your phone if you want. So can anyone else.

Anyway, have much fun with it and Happy New Year! :wave:

San Francisco Bay

January 11, 2020
https://www.facebook.com/bayospreys/pos ... 3209324788

Today we are in mourning.

As reported on Live Chat at www.sfbayospreys.org:

“My name is Teresa - I am the Banding Manager at Golden Gate Raptor Observatory and have helped band the osprey you see on the SF Bay Osprey Nest Camera. When we band raptors, we can learn about their movements, site fidelity, longevity, and much more. Unfortunately, some of our band recoveries come with sad news.

"I received news from the Bird Banding Laboratory that one of the Osprey nestlings we banded in June of 2019, blue band “WP”, was seen falling from a tree on October 1st, 2019, and died shortly after the fall. There were no other obvious injuries that could clue us in to cause of death. The bird was found in Corte Madera. By the time we received this information, the bird had been buried and it is too decomposed to do a necropsy to find out any more information. I am sorry to report this sad news to the group, but felt it was important for you all to know.”

Rest in peace, Peace-up.

Terribly sad. :cry: It's too bad they didn't send the body for necropsy.
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
