    1. Thanks Ferdy. Yes, they are great looking (blending in with the surrounding ground / earthy colors). Camouflage is the name of the game. Glad you like it and I really do appreciate your wonderful support. Great website. Posted 4 years ago

The Tawny Eagle is a large bird of prey. Like all eagles, it belongs to the family Accipitridae. It was once considered to be closely related to the migratory Steppe Eagle, ''Aquila nipalensis'', and the two forms have previously been treated as conspecific. They were split based on pronounced differences in morphology and anatomy; two molecular studies, each based on a very small number of genes, indicate that the species are distinct but disagree over how closely related they are.
