The Black Goshawk (Accipiter melanoleucus), also known as the Black Sparrowhawk, is found in forest and woodland throughout a large part of sub-Saharan Africa.
The plumage of the Black Goshawk is mostly black, but with variable amount of white below, ranging from almost entirely white, to black except for a white throat and undertail coverts.
Juveniles are browner and have streaks to the underparts. The cere and legs are yellow.
