“If I were reincarnated, I’d want to come back as a buzzard-eagle. Nothing hates her or envies her or wants her or needs her. She is never bothered or in danger, and she can eat anything.”
Black-chest Buzzard-Eagle (Chilie Arend) – (Geranoaetus Melanoleucus)
The Black-chested Buzzard-Eagle is a bird of prey of the hawk and eagle family. It is also known as the Black Buzzard-Eagle, Grey Buzzard-Eagle, or as the Chilean Blue Eagle.
It is noted for its bulky, powerful-looking build like a buzzard but with characteristic details of an eagle. But what I wish to note is the colouration of this bird, the blue-ish tint to the dark coloured bands. Mind you it can range from dark-grey with a blackish, brownish or bluish hue.
Types of prey it eats: mid-sized mammals, up do a Gray Fox, an occasional birds, Squamates (lizard) and if need be arthropods and carrion.
