:thumbs_up: Immature martial. The brown speckles at the back of the neck is indicative.

Thanks for the ID SVR. Adult Martial eagles are quite easy to recognise but I can't seem to ID the youngsters. I've probably seen quite a few over the years but also ended up putting them down as 'not known'. Thankyou for the forum. bondm

This juvenile Martial(?) was seen near Lower Sabie Camp on the road to Crocodile Bridge beginning July 2011. One of Krugers greatest eagles in my opinion!

I had an interesting sighting in the KTP recently when I saw a Martial Eagle in a small thorn bush breaking off branches to use as nesting material. Here the Martial flies off with the material. Must be a prickly nest and I hope they line it out with something soft. :D

Hi T

I am sure we saw the very same eagle building its nest. Was it between Kji Kji and Melkvlei?

I also have a picture on my trip report but unfortunately I didn't have the right lense because he was just too far.

Great shot.

There was a Martial Eagle around Dalkeith waterhole for a few days in May 2011 - gave nice photo opportunites like these:

Ever wondered how eagles are using their wings to turn and stay balanced?

Going by the feathers not he legs and shape of the bill, I would agree with Martial Eagle.

schliek, please use the ID threads stuck at the top of this page... the three catagories are good for any bird you need to have ID'd. That way we keep the bird pages neat and elegant.

Hi WillemK, the Martial Eagles are still around Dalkeith Waterhole as you can see in this video that I made in August 2011. I filmed the Eagles also mating.
