Accipiter brevipes – Σαΐνι – Levant Sparrowhawk

IMG_4926_Accbre

My first ever observation of a Levant Sparrowhawk was this juvenile individual. It prefers to fly at moderate height above ground and dive down to prey on ground rather using ambush technique like the other hawks.

Area of Vasilika 24/8.
