Recently saw this beautiful immature Martial Eagle in Kgalagadi. He was sitting on a branch over the road - and caused a KTP traffic jam of his own!

Once again some pictures taken in the southern half of Kruger NP in the first half of August this year.

The next bird was also identified as a brown snake eagle (in fact we seemed to see pretty much only these, tawny eagles and bateleurs of the larger raptors). Since then somebody on another forum has suggested it might be a martial eagle.

(The little white spot appears to be a feather from another bird.)

The same bird again:

I'd appreciate some more comments regarding what it is, and why that is the correct id. I'd like to learn from this if possible.

Many thanks for your help.

Hi again Kf,

This bird is a Martial Eagle as you mentioned. The large bill, crest and the barring on the secondary and tail feathers are all consistent for this species

I am not yet convinced that it is a Martial eagle though. The brown seems totally wrong to me. The martial has a much darker brown. The barring on the tail is consistent with a Brown snake eagle too. The martial is a huge bird, what can you tell us about the size of the bird?

Do you have any other photos, perhaps showing some of the front / legs? That would clear up any uncertainty.
