African Marsh-Harrier

Circus ranivorus (Daudin, 1800)

The African Marsh Harrier (Circus ranivorus) is a bird of prey belonging to the harrier genus Circus. It is found in southern, central and eastern Africa from South Africa north to Sudan with a vagrant record from Nigeria. It is particularly common in the Okavango Delta in Botswana (Simmons 1997). It is usually found in wetland areas, especially those with reeds, but also occurs in grassland and farmland where it forages. Source: Wikipedia
