Some tricky ones here, but I'm going to give it a bash. I haven't checked any books yet, and these are just first impressions:

5. Definitely Brown Snake-Eagle.

excellent work guys! I was way of course haha! :big_eyes:

I cannot give you exact details of the locations, as they were taken by my father.

However, in January 2013 he was staying at Tamboti, LS and Pkop (So more South of the Park)

and the pictures taken in April 2012 were more Central/North of the Park towards Tamboti and Mopani

When we saw this raptor in Kruger end of May this year, my first thoughts were Brown Snake Eagle but so pale?
so I deduced ? juvenile
but now wondering if its not juv Black-chested SE?
Can anyone confirm please.
Thanks.

I saw yours in your TR Elsa, and also had a look at my bird book

both are in Kruger... but I will incline for a juvenile Brown... Snake-Eagle :hmz:

Thanks AM and Charbel, :thumbs_up:
my thoughts too but I just wanted to make sure as even the bird guides say the juveniles can be confusing.
