female; members of the genus are related to kites. There are signs suggesting that they could be an older, basal type among the evolutionarily younger kites that evolved their respective characteristics later (DNA analysis would be needed to establish more). The honey buzzard feeds mainly on larvae
of bees, wasps, on flying adults, honeycomb and honey.
