Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.
A medium-sized, red-faced black bird that searches the temperate lands for carrion.


Buzzards are incredibly weak and extremely annoying animals that should be prepared for on embark to any biome where they are present. An individual buzzard can steal a stack of food and they travel in groups of five to ten. They can be particularly devastating for a newly set up fortress which hasn't yet planted a farm; while the buzzards feast upon prepared warthog kidney, you'll be searching for vermin to eat. They also have no qualms about stealing directly from your above-ground farm, biting at your farmers, and grabbing strawberries right out from under their noses.

It is possible to capture them in cage traps, providing you with a very ugly bird to release into your zoo. They can be tamed, but generally aren't worth it.

Buzzards leave very little when butchered. Around half of them will be stripped down to nothing more than a skull for your bone carvers.
