Common Buzzard  (Buteo buteo) – Mäusebussard
Buse variable - Ratonero común - Poiana comune 
Águia-de-asa-redonda - Обыкновенный канюк
Wingspan 110–140cm  (43–55 in) 
Native in Europe and parts of Asia.
The spectrum of prey are predominantly mice and small mammals, but this Buzzard is an opportunist. So you can also often see him walking and surching for worms, insects and snakes, as well as he is also frequently looking next to highways after dead animals, especially in  winter when food is scarce, because of much snow.
Although it is forbidden, unfortunately buzzards are still pursued by hunters.
