Home Alphabetical Maps Taxonomic Links/Resources

The augur buzzard is seen in mountain country, including forest, agricultural and urban areas. In the adults note the short reddish, non-barred tail, the distinct dark trailing wing edge and the typical dark "comma" on the white wing. The juvenile landing on a branch (Oldonyo Sambu, 5-15) is courtesy of Stephan Schramm. The dark morph in row 5 (Ngorongoro Crater, 11-16) is courtesy of Linda Bushman. The other photos were taken in Arusha NP, Ilboru, Ngorongoro Crater, Oldonyo Sambu, Oldupai, Lake Manyara, TGT-Arusha, Gol Mountains and Ndutu. The immature (bottom left) is courtesy of Steve Brynes.
