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

Sandeep
