Common and widespread, the tawny eagle is a relatively large, handsome bird of prey, with heavily feathered legs (4) (5). The plumage is generally tawny to rusty brown in colour, often with dark markings on the wings, especially the flight-feathers (2) (4). Three subspecies are currently recognised, which occupy different geographical regions, and vary slightly in size, markings and colouration (2). During its first year, the immature tawny eagle’s plumage is much paler than the adults, often whitish, especially on the underparts (2) (4). More

Habitat: The Tawny eagle is found throughout Southern Africa in open or scarcely wooded areas, thornveld and desert but not along the coastal areas of Namibia. Habits and Characteristics: Doesn't call out frequently but has a characteristic kow-kow call. This type of eagle is very lazy and instead of hunting for its prey it hangs around vultures and feeds on carrio. When it does occasionally hunt it mainly feeds on birds, snakes, ground squirrel, dassies and chameleons. More

Namibian conservation areas (where Tawny Eagles have an area of occupancy 31,728 km2 : Jarvis et al. 2001), and a density of 0.2 prs/100 km2 (Osborne et al. unpubl data) populations number about 63 prs. The remaining non-conservation areas (area of occupancy of 102,000 km2) holding birds at a density of 0.1 - 0.24 prs/100 km2 (Brown 1991, Osborne et al. unpubl data) holds 102 - 250 prs. Thus Namibia holds a maximum of 416 - 560 prs of Tawny Eagles (maximum ~1510 individuals). More
