Observations about the universe, life, Lausanne and me

There is this bird who likes to circle over the EPFL. First I thought it a vulture, come to feed on the bodies of disillusioned students and faculty.
But today it circled quite low - of cources I only had my small Exlim with me, I don't know why I even bothered to buy the SLR! But I nevertheless managed to snap the picture on the right, and according to this site it is a buzzard. The common buzzard, to be precise, Buteo buteo buteo. It will still happily feed on our corpses, I suppose, but it also takes the occasional cute rabbit or mouse.
