In addition to giving myself and others assistance in identification, this thread is a wonderful way to see raptors up close! I enjoy everyone's photos and have learned a great deal from the posts.

Thank you everyone!
Wonderful Brown Snake-Eagle and outstanding shots of the Gymnogene (one of my favorites)!

Hi MM,

Looks like a Brown Snake-eagle. Greyish, bare legs and yellow eyes.

I believe this is a juvenile raptor of some sorts. Not a great pic but hopefully enough to identify. Please click on the link.

Thanks

Juvenile raptor

Hi all. Saw this bird between LS and Skukuza last weekend. Confirming whether my ID of Brown Snake Eagle at the time is correct.
