Hi Wingman

Both are African Goshawks.

First one is an adult (Note the grey cere which separates itself from the smaller Little Sparrowhawk) and second one a juvenile (look at the black stripe on the throat which is a great ID feature.

Thanks DD that's what I thought, but the juvi was much larger than the adult which confused me and they were only a couple of hundred meters apart.

Juveniles tend to be bigger than adults due to them eating like pigs... :lol:
