Wake up call

We do occasionally hear Fish Eagles in Cape Town, but the familiar chk chk call of the African Goshawk is a common early morning sound in Constantia. The day before yesterday was rainy and stormy, but patch of clear weather brought out our resident bird. It likes to call from the tops of trees - like this tall Norfolk Pine in our garden.


  1. What an absolutely perfect perch! And a wonderful capture! No goshawks or trees this tall in Manila.

    Welcome to the CDP community! I'm looking forward to seeing more of Cape Town through your eyes.

  2. Thanks. I really enjoy the daily photos and getting to know all the different places.
