Buzzard ?

We saw this bird yesterday in the fields. Khádi says it's a buzzard, scientific name buteo buteo. As for me, I would call it a big bird, so I won't argue about the name, and neither do I have the slightest idea on how old it may be...

Tegnap találkoztunk egy egerészölyvvel a határban. (Szerintem egerészölyv.) Most nem fogok vitába szállni sem a fajtájáról sem a koráról...

Nous avons croisé ce rapace hier dans les champs. Khádi dit que c'est une buse, je n'ai aucune raison de ne pas la croire étant donné que le seul nom que je serais capable de lui donner est "gros oiseau"...

No, it is not a buzzard. It is a hawk and it looks very much like a Coopers Hawk but it might also be a Sharp-shinned Hawk. It is a hawk for sure but I am not sure which kind of hawk you have in your country.

Not sure what kind of bird it is, but a beautiful picture!
