Familiarising with this Bat Hawk

posted in: birds, Raptors | 0

Slowly getting to know this Bat Hawk’s (Macheiramphus alcinus alcinus) routine and behaviour. It will constantly look around, possibly for prey; did not attack passing swifts.

No calls heard. Some preening in video (using Nikon P900) of perched behaviour at 7.30am (dark, overcast morning) here: https://youtu.be/X6KHjtRswyo
