I am going to give the answer because my question posted in a bird quiz remains unanswered for more than a month.

The answer is the Black-chested Snake Eagle or if you are Portuguese speaking, it is the Aguia-cobreira-de-peito-preto

Anyone with a challenging question, please throw it at us. :wink:

It might be easy, but just to get it going again. ..... :whistle:

Which animal's sound can be described as a "sawing" sound?

Unless one is familiar with bird calls and or stays elsewhere than tourist camps this may be difficult to answer .

Which bird call which is often heard at dawn may be mistaken for that of the Verreauxs eagle owl ?

That makes four of us. :wink: If it is the shrill whine that is sometimes heard, it could possibly be one of the korhaans?

If you are in KTP and you think you hear a fiery-necked night jar...What bird are you actually hearing?

Nope. The PCG's call sounds like melodious bagpipes.

S Pale Chanting Goshawk is rather silent, but during breeding season, we can hear series of melodious whistling calls rapidly repeated “klueee-kli-kli-kli-kli-klip-kleeeep” usually uttered at dawn, while perched or flying.
We can also hear a long, drawn-out and high-pitched “kleeeeee-u, kleeeeee-u” at distinct intervals.

From WikiPedia: This is generally a rather quiet bird, but during the breeding season the male makes a series of tuneful whistling calls kleeuu, kleeuu-ku-ku-ku from a tree-top perch.

:) or is the net information wrong?
