BUZZARD buz’ erd (רָאָה, buzzard; RSV Deut 14:13 [KJV kite, ASV falcon]). This is the fifth in the Levitical list of unclean birds and by Driver’s argument (see Owl) this would fit the buzzards and/or falcons. (He is incorrect in placing buzzards, harriers, and falcons in the Falconidae, to which only the latter belong.) Buzzards are broad-winged soaring hawks taking a range of prey and the Heb. name may derive from their mewing call. They are well-known in Pal. as both residents and migrants: common buzzard, in dark and pale forms, honey buzzard and long-legged buzzard.
