Archer's Buzzard

Buteo archeri Sclater, WL, 1918

The Archer's Buzzard (Buteo archeri) is a 50–55 cm long African bird of prey. The taxonomy on this species is confusing, with some taxonomists considering this species, the Jackal Buzzard, and the Augur Buzzard to be the same superspecies. Many taxonomists consider them all to be distinct, having different calls, different home ranges and slight variations in plumage. This is a species of mountains, and adjacent savannah and grassland. It is resident and non-migratory throughout its range. It is normally found in northern Somalia. Source: Wikipedia
