“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)

Chilean Blue Eagle

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.

About My Passions

I'm a Brit, born and raised on Aruba and have been living in the Netherlands for more than 10 years now. I love to cook and more so to teach others that quality stuff you eat at restaurants can be made with love in your very own kitchen. Besides being a Romantic type, I may believe one day that I may be cute! Honest to god I’m not, I bite! Seriously! :P No, life is but a Rollarcoaster, and if you fall into madness I recommend you too Dive! Because if your not ready for it, it can be hell. And because of it I’m not the type that would trust anyone on the spot, its earned. And it all starts with respect, you do treat people the same way you wish to be treated, correct?
