A very big bat colony situated along the beach in Gyseni (Rubavu). They are mostly on palms, but also on other types of trees. Seems that they feels secure there.

This was the coolest thing.
I was hanging out by a tree when I heard this bird swoop down and try to grab a dry leaf in the middle of the street thinking it was an animal. It tried a second time and then after the third time it flew away, which I captured on video (screenshot above).
I've seen these around, usually flying very high, but I'm too new to the area to identify.
It seemed to be attacking with its feet not its beak that's why I'm guessing Accipitridae.
Surprisingly spiky tail. Darker than the kind I usually find around the house. It found a container with rocks and soil I was using for planting, probably cooler than any other surface in the house.
