Comments by the Expert Panel on this record:

Comment number:   1
By:   Malcolm Robinson
Comment:   i believe this bird to be an African Hawk-Eagle, rather than an Ayres's for the following reasons. A rather slender bird, with underparts being streaked rather than heavily blotched and the black "cap" being above the eye-line rather than well below.
