Maybe I should wait until I'm home and can crop him for a better close up...but I kinda like all the branches around him..

This fish eagle was at Imbabala in Zimbabwe last week.

Nice images Sandy!!!

I think the first image is of a Tawny Eagle. All the Snake Eagles (and Bateleur) have bare unfeathered tarsi (lower legs) whereas the true eagles have feathered tarsi (though sometimes the feathers aren't that obvious).

Thanks. :)
I looked back in my files and you're right. It is a Tawny. I posted without checking. I'll go in and change it.

Carnaptious!

(Carnaptious is an old Scot's word meaning irksome, irascible, grouchy, ill-tempered and always on the edge of a fight -the word is best enunciated with a snarl!)

.. irksome, irascible, grouchy, ill-tempered and always on the edge of a fight - .. snarl!

Now why do you want to go around picking a fight with me so early in the morning by describing me so. All I was doing was minding my own business in my own cantankerous way (Snarl)

Safaris and Ketchup are similar, sometimes you shake the bottle of Ketchup and nothing comes out, you shake and shake and shake and all of a sudden everything pops out.
So donīt stop shaking the bottle, thereīs a lot inside.

This was taken in Kruger

A Brown Snake Eagle was minding his own business when a Fork Tailed Drongo appeared and started bombarding him to get him to leave the area.

Have only recently started to get into birding, so sometimes I'm a little challenged with ID-ing them.  Both of these were taken earlier this month in Sabi Sabi, South Africa.

The next one I'm struggling to ID, as the barring goes all the way up the throat, but the eyes aren't yellow ???? Anyone?

I'm not a birder, so excuse my ignorance if I get it wrong.  

 

The first is from Western Etosha and the second is a black eagle (so I am told) from Grootberg, Namibia.  The pic is from my front porch of our bungalow.  It was riding the up currents in the valley below us.
