The male Buzzard performs an impressive aerial display known as “The Roller Coaster”!
He flies straight up, then flips around and speeds downwards towards the Earth, all the while spiraling and twisting. He then swoops back up again and continues the display.
The point of it all?
To attract a female mate – or even to impress his current mate.
