Buzzards have taken over several suburban towns. They roost in trees and on house tops. The buzzards have spooked everyone around. However, the Commonwealth has told everyone that buzzards do not eat dogs or cats. Their poop is clean, too. However, people are still afraid. It has to do with how the birds look. Bald heads, beady eyes, wide wings. Then there is the hissing.
I think that buzzards have had a bad rap. People should appreciate buzzards for what they do. These birds are nature's clean up crew.
