Image: The Life of Buzzards | Paperback: 224 pages | by Dr. Peter Dare (Author). Publisher: Whittles Publishing (October 7, 2015)Buzzard's Day
-- Celebrating the bird whose circling overhead signaled to cowboys of old a creature had met its demise. Turkey buzzards' heads are featherless and red, resembling wild turkeys. They have very good eyesight and soar through the sky on big updrafts. Considered Mother Nature's garbage collectors, they are also called carrion crows, scavengers who live on dead animals.

Read: The Life of Buzzards
-- The accounts describe the life history and ecology of Buzzards mainly inhabiting the British uplands where historically they have always been most numerous. For the first time, population activities are followed through successive seasonal stages of their life cycle. These include the vital and inter-related aspects of Buzzard territories and social behavior, diets and hunting methods, food requirements, prey abundance, and breeding success, survival and life spans and how Buzzard numbers and distribution have changed, particularly in relation to the influence of Man. The book also demonstrates how well Buzzards have adapted to living in our modern and rapidly-changing landscapes, constantly adapting their habits in response to prey resources and environmental conditions.

Ides of March (44 BC)
- On this day in history, Julius Caesar was warned by soothsayers to beware of the Ides of March. Apparently, he did not heed the warning strongly enough as he was stabbed by Marcus Brutus on the Ides of March in 44 BC.

National Pears Helene Day
- Between the delectable aroma and juicy taste, the only thing better than eating a pear is eating Pears Helene. Pears Helene is a delicious French dessert made with sliced pairs and various toppings such as cinnamon sugar, chocolate sauce, vanilla syrup, and ice cream.

National Brutus Day
- Marcus Junius Brutus, a leading conspirator in the assassination of Julius Caesar, commits suicide after his defeat at the second battle of Philippi. Two years before, Brutus had joined Gaius Cassius Longinus in the plot against the Roman dictator Julius Caesar, believing he was striking a blow for the restoration of the Roman Republic.

True Confession Day
- Confessing is good for the soul. It can calm the mind and help heal the pain. So really get those tongues wagging at work today by telling all. No holding back. And if you are alone? There's always the mirror.

National Everything You Think is Wrong Day
- YOU ARE WRONG! Everything you think is wrong. Dead wrong. Your feelings and guts are golden, but those thoughts you are thinking right now? WRONG! Wrong. Wrong. It is so good to be wrong. Celebrate the splendid liberation from having to be right! You are wrong, scientists are wrong, and I am wrong too.

Dumbstruck Day
- A day to be totally dumbstruck over the things you see, hear and read. You may easily be dumbstruck to read someone created this special day. Some people are dumbstruck on a regular basis, day in and day out. The events in their lives and the world around them are overwhelming. Fortunately, that's not you (we hope).

World Consumer Rights Day (1963)
- Consumers International (CI) has called upon the international community to ensure safe water and proper sanitation reaches all of the world's six billion consumers. The consumer movement first marked March 15th in 1983, and now uses this day every year to mobilize action on important issues and campaigns.
