Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

This is the common buzzard of much of the Sahel in north, west, and central Africa. Typically has a brown back, dark chest, black-spotted white belly, and a rufous tail. Can variably show rufous on the neck and breast. Dark-brown immatures lack rufous on the tail. In flight, shows a white underwing with a thick black border. Found in savanna, broadleaved woodland, and in forest clearings. The call is a drawn-out squeal. Similar to Common Buzzard, but separated by the contrasting underparts: a dark chest and white belly.
