Jackal Buzzard DSC_0130




The jackal buzzard (Buteo rufofuscus) is a fairly large African bird of prey. The taxonomy of this species has caused some confusion in the past and it almost certainly belongs in with other African species. This is a species that lives among mountains, and on adjacent  savanna and grassland. It is resident and non-migratory throughout its range.

I caught this one through my 500mm lens flight above me
