Besra Sparrowhawk

I have frequently watched this Besra Sparrowhawk, perched on some distant tree and munching on either a small bird, reptile or frog. One morning I was quite fortunate to spot the sparrowhawk, on a tree, right besides my favourite lounging spot. I slowly crawled myself out of my chair and sneaked back into my room to get my camera gear. I then came back in a similar stealthy fashion and got some quality time with this beauty.

The bird was hiding and waiting for a prey, possibly a lizard for quite a long time, the moment it spotted it prey it swooped down and flew off with it. Hardly any time to check out on its food.

May be next time I will have photographs of its meal too.
