‘Buzzard’ can refer to one of a number of large birds, but in this case it refers to vultures. Vultures are scavengers; they eat carrion (dead animals), and will circle in the air over dying creatures. They live in many different climates, but are particularly associated with the desert, where they will descend on the bodies of those lost and killed in the heat.
