Kampala: October 31, 2015

These two photographs don't look great together, but they were taken of the same individual Lizard Buzzard within a few seconds of each other. Consider them a photography lesson in the importance of backlighting and color balance, if you will. I include both because together they give a good impression of one of the most common small raptors in Kampala, which is often found out in the open or soaring overhead. The identifying feature is the vertical black stripe down the center of the white throat, distinguishing it from other similar grey raptors. On Saturday, I found this Lizard Buzzard quietly sitting in the avocado tree in our yard and captured it at eye level from our balcony.
