Hi there Ice waiting for confirmation here from the Big Birders but I'd recon this is probably a Juv African Fish-Eagle.

While waiting for the "big birders" I agree with Pantera Leo's indentification.

I am having difficulty identifying this bird. You would think that the barred chest would make it easy, such as an African Hawk Eagle but the head colouring is not consistant. Immature pale form Honey Buzzard also comes to mind but not in my bird book.

Spotted 2 of these on the tar road just south of Nkulu in early September

Thanks Toko, I goofed up posting the picture.
Imberbe, photo was taken late afternoon so light was a problem. Sasol bird book of immature fish eagle shows barred neck, plus it was quite large. It doesn't seem to perch like a Fish Eagle either.

I agree with Imberbe - most likely an immature fish eagle.

It could be an osprey. Difficult to see from the photo. I have only ever seen an osprey once, and that was in flight. (Of course I've become seriously happy about immature fish eagles several times, thinking they were osprey's, only to realise after a bit that they were indeed fish eagles :| :lol: :lol: )
