I knew this one was going to be a challenge in more ways than one. After all it isn’t as if Johannesburg suburbia is a hotspot for hawks!
Anyway, I do have two photographs. Both I have posted before but there may be some who haven’t seen them.
The first shot is a of a Pied Crow harrying a Gymnogene high above our back garden. The crow was making one heck of a racket and this was what alerted me to leap from my office chair and grab my camera.
The second shot is of the hawk (not the same one!) atop the neighbour’s tree after it had launched itself from a tree in our garden. My son first spotted the bird after several of the cats were sat on the grass staring upwards. When he saw what they were looking at the call went out: ”Dad!”
