The World’s Smallest Eagle!

The few endemic birds of the Nicobar islands are very charismatic. And they were the biggest motivation for me to make the journey to the remote island of Great Nicobar in March this year. The world’s smallest eagle made the trip special!


Eastern Imperial Eagle – Juvenile

Aug 06 2012

Eastern Imperial Eagle (Aquila heliaca) This large eagle is a winter visitor to parts of North-Western India. A winter visitor from Europe and Central Asia, this majestic bird is seen in Rajasthan and Gujarat. The image is that of a juvenile bird. It had just finished quarreling with a Red-headed Vulture and settled on the tree to warm itself up in the rising sun. This bird was photographed in Tal Chapar Wildlife Sanctuary, Rajasthan on November 21, 2010.
