Stunning pics Deville, :D
One thing that intrigues me, is how does one tell a Dark Chanting Goshawk from the Gabar?
My book in fact shows the DCG as more like yours with the Gabar having a paler cere and legs. :?

Thank you Elsa 8)

I might be wrong, both have red cere and legs.
This one was about the size of a Pigeon, whereas the DCG reaches the size of a Guineafowl. Maybe the boffins can help.
