Don’t Buzz Off Buzzard!

  • They call many parts of the island home, including forests, open forest and rocky hillsides.
  • Some lemurs have alarm calls for the buzzard, so some scientists think they may prey on them.
  • Madagascar buzzards have broad wings for soaring.
  • They have yellow eyes and talons.
  • Madagascar buzzards chicks are born in September and October.

We had a lovely time watching a few of these buzzards soar in the skies. Raptors will never cease to amaze us!
