Hi all,
I took this photo during our trip in Nov 2013 - can anyone help confirm the identification?
Closest I get is a Gabar Goshawk, but are the white eyebrows normal?

From the size I would say it is a pale chanting goshawk, the white eye stripe could mean it is in the final stages of morphing from juvenile to adult.

Not sure but think it is a Goshawk :hmz:

Look at the previous page 11 off a image of a Gabar Goshawk ...and you can see the difference with the brown stripes..
