Shikra

Post is part of the project- Birds in the neighborhood. | Bird 40

These clicks are taken from various locations from 10 feet to 100 feet from my home in Warora (Dist: Chandrapur).

Shikra is also called as little banded goshawk.

Observed a juvenile for the first time on 12th March 2021 from terrace. Same evening observed an adult but couldn’t click a clear picture. Shikra is bird of prey. Had heard of Shikra as one who takes away young chicks of hen. Hopeful of clicking good pictures of adult soon. (Updating: Just a day later, spotted Adult male. Uploading pictures now.)
