Another new one for me, Red-necked Falcon They like open country with palm trees, which is typical habitat in Murchison.Dark Chanting Goshawk is another lifer. We also saw a close relative in Murchison, Eastern Chanting Goshawk. Other raptors we saw in Murchison were Lesser-spotted Eagle, Tawny Eagle, Steppe Eagle, Common Buzzard, Bataluer Eagle, Long-crested Eagle, African Fish Eagle, Montagu's Harrier, Osprey, Black Kite, Yellow-billed Kite, and African Harrier Hawk. That's a lot of raptors. We also saw plenty of vultures.
