African Goshawk Accipiter tachiro (160)
(Afrikaanse Sperwer)
Experiences with species

These birds are normally seen in thick bush or Forest, particularly on the KZN coast. They have amazing maneuverability, chasing small birds through thick forest growth. I have seen them in Nigeria as well, where the flanks show much more rufous than the Southern birds.
