Hi Tobieo
this photograph is of a young Martial Eagle. The Blackbreasted Snake-eagle doesn't have feathers all the way down to the feet.
Great pic of the Martial :clap: :clap:

Since there's so many Juv. Martials flying by, is this another one? :D :D :D

Photographed last week in Mokala Nat Park.

Thank you up front!
