Woken-up by fighting Gymnogenes.

We have a Gymnogenes or African Harrier-Hawk (Höhlenweihe) nest, at some 100m or so NE of our house. Nice birds to watch but this morning they were busy chasing the youngster out of the nest and were soooo noisy . . . Did you know: - The Gymnogene is the only animal/bird which can bend/flex the knee in both directions!
