Hi!!

There is much debate about this bird in the cams forum... I think its a Batteleurs Eagle, but I'm no expert! What do regular birders think?

Hi Tilandi,

I'd take a guess at Yellow-billed Kite.

CurtisD - Secretarybird? Best guesses from this pic?

Hi, 2 species of bird here!
I'm hopeless with birds so an ID for both would be great. I thought Egyptain geese?
