Two shots of a very obliging Pale Chanting Goshawk that hunted around the same area allowing me to get the shots.

Thank you for all your replies on my goshawk images, they are very much appreciated. Here are two images of juvenile bateleurs taken at CQ. At one point there were seven bateleurs in the waterhole.

Although I have posted the pic of the juvenile eagle previously, I find the diffence between the plain brown eagle that has transitioned into the beautiful black, white and red adult amazing.
