Buteo buteo – Γερακίνα – common Buzzard

Elikonas – Orhomenos – Elikonas 1/12.

Along the road which connects Kastro with Orhomenos, there is a steep slope where i observed remarkable raptor numbers. Nearly 10 Buteo buteo (photo), 5-7 Falco tinnunculus & 2 Falco peregrinus.
I’m not experienced on this, but the reason of the missing wing in the photo, does not seem to be moulting. Was it a hunter’s shot, just for fun ?
