Bird of the year 2012: The Common Buzzard, our most common raptor is the most common victim of illegal poisoning incidents as well

The Common Buzzard is the commonest, most widespread raptor species both in lowlands and mountainous areas. They are usually mistakenly believed to be “eagles” by the general public. Since they prefer perching next to busy highways and roads taking advantage of the managed (grazed or mowed) grassy habitats running parallel to those, many people can see them basically everywhere. However, it was not always, like that.
