BREEDS in lofty trees in Scotland, and destroys a great quantity of small game, which he seizes with his sharp and crooked talons, and carries to his nest. Somewhat larger than the common buzzard, he is of the falcon tribe; has a blue bill, and a white stripe runs over each eye; there is also a large white spot on each side of the neck. The general colour of the plumage is deep brown; the breast and belly white, transversely streaked with black; and the legs yellow.
