Looks like a juvenile Martial Eagle, but I'm not an expert MM. :hmz:

Seen on the S63 tar road to Pafuri borderpost in January 2011. Seems to be feeding on a Rock Monitor.

Hi

This one was on the ground close to Satara. I originally thought it was an African Hawk eagle, but could not see any markings, so then guessed this to be a imm martial. But did not look like the other imm martials that I had seen, hence this query.

Cheers

I agree with you that the shape of this one doesn't look right fo juvenile Martial, but with that colouring, the grey cere and the dark eye, it can't be anything else.
