Unattended prey draws in a grey heron and buzzard, but there’s not enough for them both.
Filmed in Poland, this video documents the struggle between a grey heron and a common buzzard over discarded prey.
Although the grey heron and buzzard both want the prey, only one will prevail. Can you guess who?
The buzzard defeats the grey heron this time, but this probably won’t be the last time these two birds face off.
Common buzzards, like the one in this video, are found throughout Europe and Asia and typically don’t migrate during the winter. Grey herons typically migrate to warmer climates during winter months, and they are usually found in Europe, Asia, and parts of Africa.
Next time you’re wandering throughout the woods, be vigilant and you just might witness the next struggle over unclaimed prey.
