Another boring old BOP (bird of prey) / BIF (bird in flight) from the BCT (balcony coffee table).
This is Eastern Buzzard. I picked it up because it was hovering – the kites don’t hover. Then it drifted towards me. I shouted “smile please” and it sort of obliged. I am hoping it will drift closer later today but decided I wanted to get the blog on the road for the day.
Buteo japonicus for your delight.
