The steppe and common buzzards are usually considered a single species. Most seen in Tanzania are the steppe migrants. The bird in flight has the usual steppe appearance: rufous tones and rufous tail. The flight photo was taken at Sumbawanga, courtesy of Silas Olofson. The left upper sitting bird was photographed in the Addo Elephant NP (Zambia, 1-09), courtesy of Mike Graham; the 2nd row birds, at Chobe NP (Botswana, 3-16); and the juvenile, in the Serengeti (11-15), courtesy of Steve Wainer: click it to see seven enlargements.
