Home Alphabetical Maps Taxonomic Links/Resources



The gabar goshawk is smaller (36 cm) than the similar dark-chanting goshawk (56 cm). The dark morph is fairly common: the photo above (Magongo Hill near Arusha, 2-06), is courtesy of Anabel Harries. The adult on the lower right was seen in Mkomazi NP (8-10). The juvenile in flight was photographed at Lake Chala (9-11), courtesy of Lyn Waltenberg. The superb starlings mobbing a goshawk that has stolen a chick from a nest was seen in Tarangire (3-15), courtesy of Stuart Webb; images #1-4 in the enlargements show more of this event.
