Rough-legged Buzzard

The Rough-legged Buzzard (Buteo lagopus) called the Rough-legged Hawk in North America, breed in tundra and taiga habitats of North America and Eurasia. The Rough-legged Buzzard occurring in North America migrate to the central United States for the winter, while Eurasian Individuals migrate to southern Europe and Asia.
The nest is built on a cliff or tall tree.


The Rough-legged Buzzard is largely dependent on the availability of lemmings. In good lemming years, the bird can lay up to seven eggs and when lemmings are missing the nesting might not occur.
