A Buzzard wears a necklace...

A #Buzzard for yesterday's #alicesaprilaviary drawing.

I saw two buzzards close up, one on a fence post and the other in a larch. Then more later in flight.
As I've mentioned before I've enjoyed reading about each species as I go, Wikipedia described the Buzzard as having -a pale 'necklace' of feathers' which I'd not realised before. I've been tempted to write facts about them or label features as I go but decided against it in general. However I may play with some card or print designs that builds on this idea!

Never seen in the garden as photographed but I thought it went nicely with the spring blooms and brick.
