Eagle with attitude - Changeable Hawk Eagle

Firstly HAPPY WORLD PHOTOGRAPHY DAY, although i think everyday should be one. :D


Changeable Hawk Eagle
Eagle with ATTITUDE!!


So this was i think way back in Jan-Feb when we decided to drive down to Bandipur. While images of Changeable Hawk Eagles or Crested Hawk Eagles are common, I just loved the attitude shown here by this bird.

What is also very interesting about this bird is the variety of prey it feeds on, from frogs, snakes and birds all the way up to langurs!! On this occasion we witnessed it attempting to catch a tiny bush, what surprised me was that as soon as the prey flew into a bush this huge raptor skillfully followed and tried to take it down. The agility with which it maneuvered inside the bush was a real treat. Sadly the hunt wasn't successful.
