Henst's Goshawk is one of the biggest and baddest of Madagascar's raptors. Actually looks and acts a lot like a Northern Gos.
Things are getting scary. Cases have quadrupled in a week. We're rapidly nearing 10,000 for the country. And there is a sudden outbreak in my local DIANA region, which had been spared heretofore. Hospitals in the capital are nearing capacity, and report having insufficient oxygen and other essential equipment. This same story has now been repeated many times across the world. Nothing especially unique about this. But sad to see it happening to my adopted country.
