The Gabar Goshawk (Afrikaans name Kleinsingvalk) is a versatile predator which hunts from a hidden perch,swooping down onto birds. They also steal chicks from weaver nests. Normally found in Acacia woodland areas.

The juvenile has a streaked breast and barred belly, more brown with pale eyes, adult more grey with dark eyes. We saw this juvenile chasing insects in Skukuza in the Kruger National Park
