Got a question for you birders out there. Saw a pair of fish eagles mating on Saturday. There was none of the normal nesting ritual to go with it. Not surprising as we are out of nesting season.


Friends that joined us in Olifants on 20 October also saw a pair of Fish Eagles mating …he actually took photos of the ritual…..so possibly it is not as uncommon for this time of the year ……or they were busy with team building for the world cup final. :wink:
I will ask him to post the photos.

identification Eagle


I have another bird in this case a raptor for identification
It seems clearly a fish eagle to me, but notice the black spots on it's chest, can anyone explain this to me please?
Is it maybe not complete mature yet?
I really am curious about this.

Hi Gregor
Looks like its not entirely mature yet. Have a look at http://www.kenyabirds.org.uk/f_eagle_flying.htm. It has the same kind of marking as the bird in your photo.

Looks like a juvenile crowned eagle to me. They tend to be more darker than the ME. Also the crowned juvenile is rufousy and almost completely white in the head areas. Crowned juveniles have dark speckling on the flanks and legs, tail and underwing heavily barred. Crown more prominent? I think the experienced experts will have something different tho.

Hey, Nannie!

Definitely not Martial, and looks like a big bird, judging from the developed claws.

(Eliminating the weird variations of the hawk eagles...)

Have never seen a crowned eagle, but would agree with Mark!

Where was it!?

Not a Martial ... front of the martial juv. is almost pure white. Just a bib when young, gaining some spots as it gets older. Not the large amount of dark feathers this one has.

Not a Crowned juv. ... the cere (the back part of its beak, going in to its gape, just below the eye) should be yellow. The crowned eagle is a robust bird.

Its an juvenile Fish Eagle. :wink:

Why? Didnt even think of that. But anyway.. IMO this one is to light for a juv fish eagle. They show a lot of white during flight but when perched, barely any. Where crowned juveniles are much more lighter and a tad rufousy. Also juv fish eagle has a mostly yellow bill? Juv crowned mostly grey. All these pointed me to crowned. But im probably wrong, havnt seen fish eagles enough to judge, so I see where you're coming from Imberbe. 8)
