Fascinating footage filmed in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Uganda, shows the bird in search of prey.

The hawk stays in the same position in the air because it makes only minimal movements to maintain its balance.

He wrote: & As I drive through southwestern Uganda, I happen to encounter this melanistic Auger buzzard floating over the driveways of the steep mountainside.

& # 39; It seemed like a good place to stop and eat our packed lunch.

& # 39; The effortless take-off of a hawk is a bit of soul and heart-filling.

& # 39; Always fascinating to see and I often wonder what it would be like to be able to fly. & # 39;

A social media user said: & # 39; Wow … just great to see, you and the hawk have managed to make a great video together. & # 39;
