Tawny Eagle

Another post of the same Tawny Eagle that i had posted earlier, this image was shot from under the car, yes UNDER THE CAR! :)

Tawny Eagle
Canon EOS 20D + Sigma 135-400mm
Location: Bangalore, India

A little info about the Tawny Eagle from Wiki:
Length: 62–72 cm
Wingspan: 165–185 cm
Weight: 1.6–2.4 kg
The Tawny Eagle's diet is largely fresh carrion of all kinds, but it will kill small mammals up to the size of a rabbit, reptiles and birds up to the size of guineafowl. It will also steal food from other raptors.
The call of the Tawny Eagle is a crow-like barking, but it is rather a silent bird except in display.

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. :)

Finally managed a few record shots of this bird. :) Saw it hunt on quite a few times, but was continuously being harassed by kites. Should get some better images in the future. Thanks for viewing.

Cattle Egrets...

Been long since i went out shooting, was on the look out for the Short-toed snake eagle. While we(Vinay L., Raju V. n I) did find a couple of STSEs in hunting mode, couldn't really make proper image. Photographed a few Cattle Egrets and a Steppe Eagle(will put up the images later tomorrow).
