@ Mgoddard

Thanks for the location.

That Juve Crowned Eagle is really stunning, one bird I'd love to see in Kruger.

Have fun growing that list :)

Of course, you should all be believing Lizet! :o After all, she has the id's 100% correct (not that there was ever any doubt about that...!). :clap:

For what it's worth, I'll stick my votes together with Lizet's on all of the above id's.

We were lucky enough to spot this Crowned Eagle in Kruger between Lower Sabie and Skukuza in June this year, a lifer for us.

Last one for today. Both photographed in Ithala NP, KZN, August 2011.

First one probably to far (bad quality) for positive ID, but I can't even seem to settle on a family?

All the best, Michael
