Lizard Buzzard

Kaupifalco monogrammicus

This birds name can be misleading, as far from being a buzzard, it is actually a small hawk with short legs. Although it is often confused with the similar looking gabar goshawk, its white throat with central black stripe distinguishes it from all other goshawks and accipiters.

We first saw this striking bird of prey in September 2010 while on a bush walk in the Ndumo Game Reserve.
