Tawny Eagles are very versatile raptors, eating anything from dead Elephants to Termites ! Their scavenging habits have resulted in the species being very vulnerable to poisoned baits used in carnivore control on some farms.
V2 - the fuller picture Smile
We visited the African Bird of Prey Sanctuary near Pietermaritzburg during our holiday and got quite a few nice shots of mostly damaged or compromised birds that have been rescued.
Thanx for all your votes and comments on the Bushbuck images and to Jeff for his mod and help Smile

Two fine shots, Herman, and an interesting narrative too: the portrait shot at V 1 is excellent, detail so well captured and there's a nice catch of light in the eye.
