The Savannah Hawk is an opportunistic feeder, preferring snakes, fish, lizards and frogs. It also eats small mammals, insects, beetles, caterpillars, grasshoppers, ants and spiders and occasionally birds. It is attracted to grass fires to capture prey escaping from the fire. This species has a number of calls - a high-pitched cry, 'kree-ce-ee-er', or 'skieh' that ends in a drawn-out wail.<br />
