The common buzzard is a medium-to-large bird of prey which has a large range. A member of the genus Buteo, it is a member of the family Accipitridae. The species lives in most of Europe and extends its breeding range across much of the Palearctic as far as northwestern China, far western Siberia and northwestern Mongolia. Over much of its range, it is a year-round resident. However, buzzards from the colder parts of the Northern Hemisphere as well as those that breed in the eastern part of their range typically migrate south for the northern winter, many journeying as far as South Africa. The common buzzard is an opportunistic predator that can take a wide variety of prey, but it feeds mostly on small mammals, especially rodents such as voles. It typically hunts from a perch. Like most accipitrid birds of prey, it builds a nest, typically in trees in this species, and is a devoted parent to a relatively small brood of young. The common buzzard appears to be the most common diurnal raptor in Europe, as estimates of its total global population run well into the millions.
The common raven, also known as the western raven or northern raven when discussing the raven at the subspecies level, is a large all-black passerine bird. Found across the Northern Hemisphere, it is the most widely distributed of all corvids. There are at least eight subspecies with little variation in appearance, although recent research has demonstrated significant genetic differences among populations from various regions. It is one of the two largest corvids, alongside the thick-billed raven, and is possibly the heaviest passerine bird; at maturity, the common raven averages 63 centimetres in length and 1.2 kilograms in mass. Although their typical lifespan is considerably shorter, common ravens can live more than 23 years in the wild. Young birds may travel in flocks but later mate for life, with each mated pair defending a territory.
3. Friedrich von Saarwerden
Frederick of Salvaden was called Frederick III. Archbishop of Cologne from 1370 to 1414. With the support of his uncle, Archbishop Kuno II of Trier. Friedrich von Salvorden of Falkenstein was elected archbishop of Cologne at the age of 20, which the pope confirmed in Avignon two years later. Frederick discovered that the archdiocese was completely looted by his two predecessors, Adolf and Engelbert, and even when he was elected, he guaranteed Curia high payments. However, with the help of his very wealthy uncle Kuno, he managed to cancel the archdiocese's debt within a few years.
A bartizan, also called a guerite, garita, or échauguette, or spelled bartisan, is an overhanging, wall-mounted turret projecting from the walls of late medieval and early-modern fortifications from the early 14th century up to the 18th century. Most frequently found at corners, they protected a warder and enabled him to see his surroundings. Bartizans generally are furnished with oillets or arrow slits. The turret was usually supported by stepped masonry corbels and could be round, polygonal or square.
The red junglefowl is a tropical bird in the family Phasianidae. It ranges across much of Southeast Asia and parts of South Asia. It was formerly known as the Bankiva or Bankiva Fowl. It is the species that encompasses the chicken ; the grey junglefowl, Sri Lankan junglefowl and green junglefowl have also contributed genetic material to the gene pool of the chicken. While chickens are also classified as red junglefowl, the term often only refers to wild subspecies in common parlance.
Friedestrom Castle, formerly often called Friedestrom Castle, is a former electoral Cologne state castle in the Dormagen district of Zons. The former moated castle is located on the left side of the Rhine and was intended to secure, among other things, the Rhine customs duties levied in Zons. It therefore belongs to the type of customs castle. Furthermore, it was responsible for securing the territory of the Electorate of Cologne against the counts and later dukes of Berg.
7. Haus Bürgel
Haus Bürgel is a medieval fiefdom and a former Roman castle in Monheim am Rhein in the North Rhine-Westphalian district of Mettmann. The complex is located about 850 meters from the banks of the Rhine in the Urdenbacher Kämpe, north of the Baumberg district of Monheim. The building is one of the 44 archaeological places that has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site of Limes since July 2021.
