Southern Pale Chanting Goshawk

Melierax canoris (near-endemic)

This is the largest of the chanting goshawks and can be clearly distinguished from their dark-chanting cousins by its white rump and very pale secondaries.

They are very common predators in the Northern Cape, Karoo and southern Namibia. We have been fortunate to see them hunting on foot as well as in the company of a honey badgers.
