Wildlife Photos: Grey-faced Buzzard Eagle

Migratory Visitor to Okinawa



This bird spends the winter months on island and leaves around March.

They come from northern areas like Russia, China or, mainland Japan.

bird, Buzzard Eagle perched

Also called Frog Hawks or, Buzzard Hawks, Butastur indicus, is their Latin name.

They will eat snakes, frogs, lizards, bugs and, small animals.

This bird was kind enough to put on a little skit for the camera.

So, plenty of extra shots were take to create this GIF.

Today, I discovered a site called, Global Raptors Org and, it's a great reference.

Working to conserve birds of prey in nature, is what they are all about.
