Thread: Buzzard Flies

  1. #1

    Default Buzzard Flies

    There is a buzzard roost where I was fishing today and I picked up a nice feather off the water, black shiny and measured from quill a little over 2 inches long. I think the buzzard is a migratory bird so it may be illegal. (well have to check) Has anyone ever used their feathers for tying?

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    When you say Buzzard - I assume you are referring to the Turkey Vulture. If so, then the answer to your question is yes - Turket Vultures do migrate from Northern states to Southern States in the Winter. I think some of them even migrate further South than that. The Turkey Vulture is covered under The Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Apparently possessing the feathers is not legal.
