Help with Raptor in Botswana

Recommended Posts

This one is frustrating me.   Clear picture so you would think it would be easy to ID!   Any help appreciated. Picture taken in Chobe NP (Botswana) in June 2014.   Thanks!DSC_0155.thumb.jpg.f7bd84fe98defcd5db537b4dcd924d3a.jpg

That's a young Martial Eagle, due to the very pale overall and finely barred secondaries and tail. The similar young Crowned Eagle would have more distinct barring and have some barring on the thighs, which are pale in the your bird.
