Sorry, Elad but could maybe repost the pic. It's just a wee bit on the small side :wink:


Sorry for that, hopefully my second attempt will be better:

Perfect. :D

Now, that is a 4th or 5th year Bateleur like I mentioned in a previous post. Notice the yellow bill etc. It will soon start changing, feathers to black, face and feet to pink and then red.

I thought the light was quite good.

:shock: Wow there are some talented photographers in this forum :)
such a beautiful bird. we are usually lucky to spot at least one on our KNP trips, and its always a treat.

we saw this fella in April along the river road from croc to malelane. a car came round the corner unfortunately and scared him off. but he was a beauty :)

Saw this Immature Bataleur on the S25 in June. :D
Must be honest and admit that I had it pegged as a Brown Snake Eagle initially.
Just find the immature's so difficult to ID. :? :roll:

They have hardly any tail Elsa and are the sepia version of the adult!

On our last trip, we saw an immature bateleur on a high tree and then a second one on another tree about 300 meters away.
we were quite surprised to see 2 in a so short distance...
do you think these might be related in any way or are they maybe immature fighting for a territory ???
what do you think?

IMHO a brown snake eagle should have yellow eyes and I rather see them dark
I would rather go for an Immature bateleur but I wonder about the legs, I can't see their colour on this photo .do you have another one from another angle ?

Looks more like a Bateleur to me.
