I agree with Tawny. The nostril is more oval and more prominent, whereas with Wahlberg it should be more round and small. Good tip I learned here on the forums. :clap:

Please can I have some help with the ID of this raptor seen in Kruger in Feb this year.
Maybe a pale Wahlberg's?
The bird was quite some distance away so this was the best we could get at full zoom.

Hi, I am not 100% sure, but I think this is a Tawny Eagle.

Image

This photo was taken in November 2012 in the southern parts of the Kruger National Park.

Reasons for Tawny:
* Big and powerful looking Eagle.
* Eye is light brown.
* Mouth ending below the eye.
* Feather colour is Orange - brown.
