Raptors of South Africa

Raptors of South Africa

The lions of the bird world. Almost everyone will stop for them in the large national parks.

Raptors are half the reason I got into birding. Being large they grab attention, but look closely and you will see amazingly detailed plumage. From apparently dirty vultures to cute pygmy falcons to regal bateleurs - all are worth a second look and much admiration.
