A Bateleur from Botswana having a drink.


Very nice! I got to see some of these eagles when I was in South Africa, but none that close. I also only had a small point-and-shoot type film camera with me at the time (yeah, it was a FEW years ago) ;-)a

They are really something!

Sort of an interesting and unscientific jump to conclusion on my part, but there are a number of Snake Eagles in Africa, most are less colorful by far, but there is another snake eating bird that is equally or even more visually stunning, and it too was evolved from raptors,. the unique and bizarre Secretary Bird.

In the Bateleur, I really started to see a lot of similarities (despite the obvious significant differences) The brighter distracting colors, the scaled armored legs, I jumped to the conclusion that looking at the two we are looking at two very distinct stages of the evolution of snake eating raptors. The Bateleur (and other snake eagles) have yet to decide to stop hunting from the sky, a decision that the secretary bird made thousandths of years ago.

Backyard hummer. Perhaps I could have cropped closer, but I kind of like this

I did a double take, almost looks like there's shadow on the wall.
