Tawny Eagle!!

P.S. I had wrongly quoted the bird as 'Steppe Eagle' earlier. After some debate over the ID by some experts, it was identified as the 'Tawny Eagle'

Finally managed to get the Tawny Eagle(the first time being more of record shots on my first visit to this water-body). Made a few images. More to follow soon.

All images shot handheld and manually focused with: Canon EOS 20D + Sigma 135-400mm

Thanks for viewing. :)

  5. Yes fantastic pictures once again. You do have so many eagle species, I'm jealous... We only have the white-tailed over here and it is quite rare...
