Pale Chanting Goshawk


Not far from Oldupai Gorge, the cradle of mankind, you’ll find a few Pale Chanting Goshawks making their living in the arid scrubland. The rains have come and the Thompson’s Gazelles have arrived along with the Wildebeest and Zebra. This Tommy’s Gazelle doesn’t phase the Goshawk in the slightest.


Nothing can distract it from the lizard sunning itself on a rock out of the frame. Yes, moments later it got its meal.


Time to cool off.

    What a gorgeous bird! And that’s a lovely series of photographs. Thanks for doing this… it makes the thing come alive much more than just a single shot would.
