This morning I stepped outside and saw this very impressive Black Sparrowhawk (Great Sparrowhawk), Accipiter melanoleucus, perched in a tree. It sat still for several minutes. This is a very large Accipiter, similar in size to the Northern Goshawk.

    How many birds have you been able to add to your life list on this trip?
