This afternoon I was watching a pair of buzzards wheeling over the forest. The male was displaying his aerial prowess by soaring up to a great height and then plunging down with wings closed only pulling out of the dive at the last moment. He continued this for some time soaring and plummeting. The female circled around a few times and then made off lazily into the distance quite unimpressed by the aerobatics.
