Description:

There were 3 of these birds together in the long grass. 1 flew off leaving these 2 behind (did not manage to check if this 1 had the same colouring ). The remaining 2 both looked the same in colour. This was eating a rabbit/bird. Was hard to tell. Also did not note shape of wings in flight.
