The Augur Buzzard, an African hawk, spends much of its time soaring while looking for food. When it sees potential prey, it continues to soar while making a slow descent, at times hovering in place. When the buzzard thinks it has the advantage, the hunter will then tip forward and power dive "out of the blue" to make its kill. This remarkable hawk is also known to engage venomous snakes and monitor lizards on the ground, using its broad wings like a matador's cape to entice the snake to strike, then quickly grabbing the head with its talons.
