  1. I had a really cool sighting during my recent visit to Majete NP in Malawi. I was tracking a Gymnogene (African Harrier Hawk) as it flew overhead when it came to rest in a palm tree. It hadn't landed though, it was raiding the nests of the African Palm Swifts hidden in the tree. I watched as it moved from one nest to another, hanging there while it stole the eggs before moving on to the next. I'm sure this is something that happens every day, but I'd never seen it before.
  2. This also happened in March, this year, at Selinda, but on another red-billed hornbill’s nest. When I arrived, this subadult african harrier-hawk was, I think, just finishing its work of destruction and plundering. The red-billed hornbill was vainly trying to chase it away. Eventually, the gymnogene moved to another tree.
