The Marshall Eagle (Polemaetus bellicosus) is the largest of all the raptors and found throughout Sothern Africa. These pictures show a juvenile and an adult in full plumage.
They are usually silent and found in almost all habitats where there are tall trees or power pylons for nesting sites.
Normally they are seen singularly or in pairs and soar to great height.
They hunt by scanning the ground while in flight or from a perch and eat smaller birds, small antelope, mongoose, hares and reptiles.
