<<< Stefan, bussards are raptors. The word comes from the Middle English busard
and modernly is spelled buzzard. To my knowledge, they aren't particularly
Yes, that is what I was trying to bring out. Many people seeing a comment about bustards would think "Why would I want to eat a carrion eater like what I see circling in the skies of the western US", so I was trying to indicate it wasn't the same bird.
<<< I believe the bird of which you are thinking is the Great Bustard
(Otis tarda) which is found in Europe and weighs over 20 kg (44 lbs). >>>
Okay, okay. *u* not *a*. :-) Got it. That's one big bird.
