An adult Dark Chanting Goshawk (Autour sombre, Melierax metabates) has been seen on 25 February 2007 ten minutes by foot northeast from Hotel Riad l’Arganier d’or (North of Zaowiat-Ifer Kane, near Taroudant). The weather condition was sunny with no wind.
The bird was first seen perched on a tree in an area of fields with trees and some scrubs. It then soared for two/three minutes above the observers after being attacked by two Black-winged Kites.
They saw very well his long red legs, grey chest and white barred belly, his head with dark eyes and a red cere, the broad wings with the black wingtip and the long, rounded tail (Thomas & Waltraud Lang)
