Happy New Year!
May your new year be filled with beautiful birds!
This beauty looks like a red-tailed hawk but he’s from Africa. His tail is red but he doesn’t have the telltale “belly band” of dashes on his chest.
This is an augur buzzard (Buteo augur) from Serengeti National Park, Tanzania. Click on the photo caption to see the original featured photo on Wikimedia Commons.
p.s. Augur buzzards have charcoal gray backs and very hooked beaks, but you can’t see those features in this photo.
