African harrier hawk, Polyboroides typus. Resident in forests and open broadleafed woodland areas this large raptor can often also be seen flapping its broad wings in a slow beat across the suburban skyline. I have watched from my window as this bird, also known as a Gymnogene, poked his leg into a tree hole and fished out a nestling for breakfast.
