This looks like a Falcon to me, but I don't know what kind of Falcon. :hmz:

Hi Curtis,

It's a Rufous-chested (redbreasted) Sparrowhawk. Great photo.

I had this rather shy one visit a tree which overhangs my yard in Paarl. It is the only time I have ever seen one in the area. The tree later had to go unfortunately as it was lifting foundations.
