Both Goshawk images are from the Serengeti but I need your help with the correct ID. 

Thanks in advance.

@Botswanadreams - it looks like a Dark Chanting-Goshawk to me, since the cere is orange-red and not yellow like an Eastern Chanting-Goshawk would show.

 

Very nice closeup photos - the second one is really good!

Thanks very much @offshorebirder. So you mean for both because they are two different birds.

Yes @Botswanadreams - they both look like Dark Chanting-Goshawk.    Both appear to have orange ceres (flesh between the nostrils and the eyes) and streaked (not white) undertail coverts.

Hoping you saw those recently, meaning you've been able to get to Tanzania.

Thanks again @offshorebirder

@Atravelynn both pics are from 17/02/2021. Maybe you missed "Tanzania - A journey in the Covid-19 pandemic" in the Tanzania trip report section.

We saw this Yellow-necked Spurfowl in Tarangire

This second pic was taken 5 minutes later but I can't remember the situation. With this reddish legs I don't think they are chicks from the Yellow-necked Spurfowl. Could that be Crested Francolins?

 

Thanks in advance again for any help.

This is the next one from Tarangire. It could be a White-bellied Bustard but I'm not sure. Help needed again please.

@BotswanadreamsMy guess would be female white-bellied bustard.
