Some of the SA juvenile raptors are downright devilish and as for the various morphs as well :roll: :doh:

How about this one Tawny or Steppe?

Steppe Eagle!

The bill clearly ends somewhere below or even past the end of the birds eye.
This is typical to steppe eagle.

I think it actually looks more like a Booted Eagle.

What I didn’t say was that it was a BIG BIG Eagle, so that would exclude Booted.

I had it down as a Steppe, which was a lifer for me :dance: and a more “Eagley” Eagle there never was, sitting on the top of Shabeni Hill KNP.

It’s great to get conformation of it from the experts, as my birder’s conscience has been tickling me ever since! :doh:

If anyone disagrees though, please don’t hold back, I can take it

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ :pray:

just about.
