Hi

This raptor seen near Skukuza on 25th Oct. Would appreciate help in identifying. My first impression because of the size was a Wahlberg. Thanks

Thanks Wildtuinman and Ladybirder. The puffed up chest and resultant neck disappearing did create a doubt, but thanks again for confirming

Hi All, Could you possibly identify this pird of prey, being pestered by a Fork-tail drongo.

Sorry about the back view as the bird then flew away before I could get a better photo.

Tough one.

When was the photo taken?

Most probably a Wahlberg's Eagle fluffed up in the early morning.
