  1. Hi,

    Congratulations for the great homepage!

    I just would like to mention that the eagle you describe to have seen in Moremi in May 2010 looks like a Tawny eagle (Aquila rapax) to me.

    The yellow/black eye (dark in Wahlberg’s), the strongly built bill and the ovale nostril (round in Wahlberg’s)let me come to this conclusion.
