What's the difference between a Buzzard and a Hawk ?

Buzzards are birds of prey in the genus Buteo. They have broad wings and short tails. That would be birds like the Red Tailed Hawk, Rough Legged Hawk, Red Shouldered Hawk, etc. Technically, they are all buzzards.

Technically speaking, a hawk is a bird of prey in the genus Accipiter. They have short wings and long tails. They would be birds like Cooper's Hawks, Sharp Shinned Hawks, and Goshawks.

Here in the US we pretty much just mush them both together and refer to both of them as hawks, though it's technically incorrect.

Yep. Unfortunately, in most of the US, if you say buzzard, most people thing of vultures, especially Turkey Vultures. Which is incorrect. :p

    If I remember right, in Europe, they are the same thing pretty much, except buzzard only refers to buteos, and in the U.S., the word buzzard is used for any new world vulture (or maybe even all vultures), like the Turkey Vulture.  :)

Thank you very much! I am lucky enough to be around captive birds. I wish I could get this close to a wild one!
