tawny eagle, african fish eagles

Tawny Eagle or Aquila rapax, is a large bird of prey. It is about 62�72 cm in length and has a wingspan of 165�185cm. It belongs to the family Accipitridae and 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; molecular analysis indicates that these birds are not even each other's closest relatives.
