I am new to this forum. I was doing my 87
year old uncle a favor buy picking him
up an hour from where I was staying to
take him to dinner and where he wanted
to go was right where I came from. So
I had to drive hour to pick him up an hour
back to the restaurant an hour back to
take him home then an hour back to
my place. He knows I will do anything
to get a picture of a bird. When I picked
him up he gave me a very old pair of
7 Buy 35 Bushnell binoculars which know
they are phasing out. Long story short.
I looked up on the net about the binoculars
and that’s when I found this site. So you
all know, for a bird fanatic this has to be
very close to the best thing that has ever
happened to me. I look forward to many
enjoyable hours here. Right now I am
trying to figure out how to answer a question
for Uk Rarity Photographs and don’t know
how to go about it, but will figure it out
So meanwhile can someone out there
answer it for me? The bird is not an African
Goshawk, It is a Eurasian Sparrowhawk.
I know this because I have taken many
pictures of African Goshawks driving
across the deserts of Southern Africa
and The Namibian desert.
