Sparrowhawk

Observation - Sparrowhawk - Southern Africa. Description: A large Raptor devouring a Laughing Dove in our Fish Hoek garden

A large Raptor devouring a Laughing Dove in our Fish Hoek garden. It looked like a Juvenile bird.
We watched for over two hours on and off. The bird was extremely alert, so I didn't dare try and photograph from outside! With the yellow legs, it might be a Black Sparrowhawk.
