Caption: Pale chanting goshawk (Melierax canorus) eating a field mouse in a camelthorn tree. This carnivorous bird-of-prey inhabits the savannah and bushlands of southern and eastern Africa. It hunts by day, watching from a perch and swooping to seize small animals such as lizards, birds, snakes and mammals. These birds also feed on termites when these insects are in abundance. Adults live in territorial pairs. Pale chanting goshawks roost in trees at night. Filmed in the Auob riverbed of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, southern Africa.
