The African Harrier-Hawk is the largest hawk in the region. It has a small head with a yellow face and long thin yellow legs. For me this was the first time I've seen this bird on the ground. Normally it sits on a high branch of a tree or large shrub . This bird robs bird nests, eating the eggs and baby birds if it gets a chance.
