AppearanceThe African hawk-eagle is a small to medium-sized eagle at about 55–65 cm in length. The upper parts are blackish. Its underparts are white heavily streaked with black. The underwing flight feathers are white with a black trailing edge. The underwing coverts are mostly black with white spots.
Sexes are similar, but young birds are brown above and rufous coloration replaces the black underparts of the adult.
