Is it a pale chanting goshawk?


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?


Your information is correct :thumbs_up: Funny enough, that is the answer to the question that I posted :hmz:

Another one I'll try and resurrect as it doesn't look like SJM is likely to pose a Q soon. :lol:

Why do jackals howl at the full moon?

We heard Jackals howling at Tsendze now in July and there were no full moon :hmz:

Maybe to keep in contact with other jackals? Or to communicate? MAte?

Very interesting Q. I would say that this is supposed to be a 'true/false' question. I don't think that jackals howl just because it is full moon. What interest has a jackal has in a full moon? How does a jackal know it is full moon? What if it is overcast with no moon in sight? Own has taken us for a ride here :D

OK, let's get serious here. The howl is actually a laugh, and the jackal laughs because he can see his enemies and friends more clearly when it's full moon. :tongue:

Heksie and Rooies, you're both correct. :clap: :clap: Jackals don't only howl because it's full moon; they lift their muzzles high so that sound carries better, especially at night. This is mainly intended for communication purposes, such as territory delineation, attraction of a mate, or a warning of prey or other predators in the vicinity.

Either one of you may post the next Q ...
