A 'few' from southern KTP early March 12. At least I know the Martial Eagle which we saw a lot (incl Juveniles), but these brown ones :doh:

3) different bird seems like Tawny Eagle but happy to be corrected.

6) Another Tawny Eagle or is it :roll: Was sitting on the grass next to the road near sunset together with the below.
Image Image

7) Lost again but as mentioned above together with #6
Image Image

A lot I know but hope someone in the know has a bit of time on their hands. Many thanks for any help.

Michael

You are correct with the tawny eagles.

Good Evening Great Dane.

Here's my 2 cents worth towards your Raptors:

3. Tawny Eagle. I think this is straight forward.

6. In the brown Eagle complex one can generally I.D the tawny's by a streaked neck, head and breast. I must say I've only seen this so pronounced once and that was the KNP. Nice one. The only difference to 7 is probably that 7 is a sub adult bird. I wanted to make it a Juv Verraux Eagle but that is dreaming a bit...... :wall:

Hope that helps somewhat....

We were in KNP on the 8th of September 2012 and was driving along the H3 from Malelane at about 10:00 when we saw this raptor. I most probably ID it incorrect as a Wahlberg's Eagle and would like a positive ID from our experts if possible.

It looks like a female tawny eagle to me.

here's one from my recent trip to KNP - tawny eagle?

filmed on Oct 14 near Satara

btw: I tried to embed the picture but whatever I do, I always get an error message "it was impossible to determine the dimensions" (and yes, I initially did resize the picture)

Hi everybody

First I must say that I´m an absolute ignorant on birds, but on my first trip to the Kruger, this August, I took some pictures of a few birds and posted them on my ongoing TR, I tried to ID the birds and now I have some doubts regarding this two:

This one I think it´s a Brown Snake Eagle

Image

And to me this seems to be a Tawny Eagle

Image

I thought I had it right but then Heksie said that maybe they are both Wahlberg Eagles.

Can someone please ID them?
