Martial Eagle - Golden Eye An adult Martial Eagle visits a watering hole in the wilds of Namibia, southwestern Africa.  <br />

Of all the raptors, this guy is probably the most weary and cautious to visit a watering hole.  It will properly check out all aspects before approaching a watering hole.  Thus, I would conclude, that this beautiful raptor is rather shy and overly cautious.
