Ravens Pull a Buzzard’s Tail

The ravens are pretty much the same size as the buzzard so the buzzards rarely get much dinner before the tail pulling drives them away. The eagles last a lot longer, they shake their feathers and the ravens back off.

Buzzards seem quite similar to the North American Red-tailed Hawk

Grey Seal Pup at a couple of weeks by Roland Müür

The oldest White Tailed Eagle in the world. It was ringed in 1980.
It was born in Estonia, but seems to live in Sweden. It was seen last week feeding on a carcass, the previous sighting was 13 years ago.
