Thanks ladies.

We had another lovely sighting of an African Harrier-Hawk very early this morning in Johannesburg.

Stunning pictures, Jan. I have seen these birds in action twice. They must be the most unpopular birds in the bird kingdom. I must say that I had tears in my eyes watching frantic purple roller parents trying to save their young.

And yes, on the gymnogene :thumbs_up: (African harrier-hawk, often found with forked-tail drongos for company, keeping a watch on the bird in case it gets up to mischief!)
