The Dark Chanting Goshawk feeds mainly on rodents, birds and reptiles but will also take frogs and insects, and is not averse to carrion. It typically hunts from the perch, spending long periods attentively scanning its surroundings before swooping down to catch prey off the ground. On occasions it will embark on high-speed aerial pursuits in order to take birds in flight. In addition, this Goshawk has been observed following foraging ground-hornbills and honeybadgers to poach the prey they flush out. Mark Drysdale
