Lizard Buzzard

Posted on Updated on

There is this Lizard Buzzard that visit the garden on a weekly basis. Sometimes staying a few days. He’s favourite perch is in the Jackalberry tree overlooking the garden. When he/she is around the garden obviously becomes a bit quiet. All the birds are on alert and move from thicket to thicket instead of flying in the open and becoming a target. I guess they view all raptors as a threat no matter what may or may not be on the raptor’s menu.


The Buzzard has become accustomed to us being around and it doesn’t mind the children playing below his perch any more. Hopefully your visit and the Lizard Buzzard’s will be on the same day.
