I agree with arks about 'the ' park, but with the others about the IDs.

Lovely blonde tawny! :thumbs_up:

Having said that, where in Kruger did you see them whipper?

Two brown raptors we are uncertain about , seen Berg-en-Dal last weekend. Quality of pics not great as I had to crop quite a bit.
First one had different shades of brown and when the vultures arrived it was not bothered.

Second one all brown and then took off.

Basically narrowed both down to either Tawny or Lesser spotted eagle for both. But not sure?

Hello! Any identification ideas on these? All pictures were taken in Kruger this month (February).

2. Near Letaba- a Tawny Eagle?
