Mountain Buzzard

Buteo oreophilus Hartert & Neumann, 1914

The Mountain Buzzard (Buteo oreophilus) is a bird of prey that lives in montane forests in East Africa (Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and extreme eastern DR Congo) and forests and plantations in South Africa. The latter population is sometimes considered a separate species, the Forest Buzzard (B. trizonatus). Source: Wikipedia
