Juvenile Martial!

Good morning everyone… its birdtime again! Today i share with you one of the biggest birds of prey in the kalahri, the Martial Eagle! These eagles can kill other birds up to the size of a stork, but it more often chooses medium-sized ground-dwelling species such as bustards. In some areas mammals constitute the greater part of its diet, with such species as young jackal and foxes. The Martial Eagle hunts mostly in flight, cicling high above its territory, and stooping sharply to catch its prey by surprise.

Take a look and let me know what you think…

Cheers til tomorrow.
