I can recall seeing this magnificent bird during my years in Zimbabwe.

I know its distribution in Southern Africa is mainly in Zimbabwe and parts of Namibia. I have read that it has been seen in the Kruger once only.

I just wanted to know if anyone in the birding fraternity has seen any Augur Buzzards and if you have any pictures of them :hmz:

Just for interest sake, I see that Lizet Grobbelaar used a Augur Buzzard in a Bird ID Challenge in 2012. Here is the Link.

Thanks Barryels. :thumbs_up: it will be interesting to see what 'mites have to say.

For me the Augur buzzard ranks with the Martial eagle and Verreaux's (black) eagle.
