Sexing, ageing and moult of Buzzards Buteo buteo in a southern European area
Author(s): Iñigo Zuberogoitia1, Jose Antonio Martínez, Jabi Zabala, Jose Enrique Martínez, Inaki Castillo, Ainara Azkona and Sonia Hidalgo
Abstract: In order to obtain a reliable method for sexing and ageing Buzzards Buteo buteo breeding in southern Europe, 115 birds from a wildlife rehabilitation centre and 43 trapped birds were measured, sexed and aged over four years (2000-2003). Dead birds we..[more]..

Numerical response of common buzzards and predation rate of main and alternative prey under fluctuating food conditions.
Author(s): Reif, V., Jungell, S., Korpimäki, E., Tornberg, R. & Mykrä, S. 2004
Abstract: We studied the numerical response of a population of the common buzzard Buteo buteo to the fluctuations of its main prey (voles) and alternative prey (forest grouse) in western Finland between 1979 and 1996. Populations of main prey fluctuated in a c..[more]..

The Complete Sequence of the Mitochondrial Genome of Buteo buteo (Aves, Accipitrid ) Indicates an Early Split in the Phylogeny of Raptors
Author(s): Elisabeth Haring, Luise Kruckenhauser, Anita Gamauf, Martin J. Riesing, and Wilhelm Pinsker
Abstract: The complete sequence of the mitochondrial (mt) genome of Buteo buteo was determined. Its gene content and nucleotide composition are typical for avian genomes. Due to expanded noncoding sequences, Buteo possesses the longest mt genome sequenced so f..[more]..

Breeding density and brood size of Common Buzzard Buteo buteo in relation to snow cover in spring
Author(s): Selas V.
Abstract: In a 500 km2 study area situated 100-400 m above sea level in southern Norway, breeding density and offspring production of Common Buzzard Buteo buteo was studied in relation to snow depth in spring during 1985-97. Because a thick snow layer will red..[more]..

Diet of Common Buzzards (Buteo buteo) in southern Norway determined from prey remains and video recordings.
Author(s): V. Selås, R. Tveiten & O.M. Aanonsen
Abstract: We examined the diet of six breeding Common Buzzard (Buteo buteo) pairs in southern Norway, by analysing pellets and prey remains collected around and in nests, and by video recording prey delivery at the nests. Mammals, birds and reptiles were the m..[more]..
