Spotted Eagle

It is about 65 cm in length and has a wingspan of 160 cm. This medium-large eagle is very similar in general appearance to its closest relative the Lesser Spotted Eagle , which shares part of its range. Head and wing coverts are very dark brown and contrast with the generally medium brown plumage; the Lesser Spotted Eagle has a paler head and wing coverts. The head is small for an eagle. The similarites of the Greater Spotted to the Lesser Spotted often results in misidentification as being that species. This is further complicated by occasional hybrids between the two species.

Greater Spotted Eagle In winter, it occurs in the range of the Indian Spotted Eagle (A. hastata). From this recently-validated relative, it can be distinguished by the darker color and lighter eye (not darker than the body plumage at distance, lighter at close range), and in juveniles, the strong spotting. It is also a bit larger – though this cannot be reliably estimated in the field – and in the winter quarters prefers wetland habitat. More

When hunted, spotted eagle rays are able to spring completely out of the water in an attempt to escape. Long, flexible tails equipped with two to six venomous spikes serve as the creature's only defense mechanism. While these rays are non-aggressive and generally avoid human contact, they can be considered dangerous if threatened by divers that get too close – their toxic tail spines can inflict serious injuries.

The spotted eagle ray was originally described in 1790 as Raja narinari (Euphrasen 1790).

The genus name Aetobatus is derived from the Greek aetos meaning "eagle" and batis meaning "ray". Synonyms referring to this species in past scientific literature include Raia quinqueaculeata Quoy and Gaimard 1824, Myliobatis eeltenkee R More

The lesser spotted eagle population in Estonia is in a comparatively good state at the moment; on the Estonian mainland there are about 500-600 nesting pairs. Most often the lesser spotted eagle can be seen in southern and eastern Estonia, since Estonia is at the north-western limit of the range of this species. On the islands no nests have been confirmed. The range of the lesser spotted eagle isn’t large, it breeds only in central and eastern Europe and winters in southern Africa. More
