Can anyone help me with this bird, I think it may be a juvenile African Crowned Eagle. It was photographed on 5 August 2014 in the Kruger Park near Nkulu picnic site. It was being chased by a mature Martial Eagle which was noticeably smaller than this bird. Thank you in advance.

having a look through another book, it now does not look like a juvenile African crowned eagle at all :wall: but more like a juvenile martial eagle :hmz:

Isinkwe, SO and I think it might be a juv. Martial eagle. Grey-green feet, white plain leggings and dark eye point to it for us.

It could have been chased out of the mature eagle's territory.........

But hey, we might be wrong in our assumption as we are still very much novices............

Whatever it is it's a brill picture :thumbs_up:

Isinkwe, you are (finally) correct. It is a gorgeous juvenile martial. Females are larger than males, so this might just be dad chasing daughter out of his territory to find her own.
