Wildlife Photo: Buzzard Eagle in Flight

bird, Butastur indicus,flying

The Grey-faced Buzzard Eagles have returned to Okinawa.

They are migratory visitors from northern climates.

Normally, these birds arrive around November and depart in the month of March.

They feed on mice, rats and snakes but, I'd love to see one grab a mongoose.

Photo taken with a Pentax K3 and 18-250 lens at a focal length of 250mm.

Nice shot Michael. You must have been running pretty fast to keep up with this fella . . . .

Not running at all. I was using a tripod and panning the camera.
