Don't. Misuse. Bird names. EVER.
But I have more evidence. Buzzard hawks (Buteos) kill and eat freshly killed prey. They're hunters. Vultures eat carrion, or things that have already died. They're scavengers.
|Common Nighthawk, adult.|
|Laughing Gull, adult, in flight.|
So what I'm trying to say is that many people use many incorrect names for birds, and if you're not sure about it, look it up. Happy birding!
"Look! A yellow finch!"
He means Goldfinch. Whoopsie daisy.
|Goldfinch. Not yellow finch. Remember that.|
