QUESTION:

What is the difference between a young African hawk-eagle and an adult eagle?

 

ANSWER:

This photo of the sheet of Waterberg conglomerate rock at the Leopard´s Sleeping Place shows a young African hawk-eagle next to a carcass. A young African hawk-eagle´s feathers on the legs and chest are brown in contrast to the black-barred, white feathers of an adult and its eyes are brown as opposed to orange-yellow in the adult. African hawk-eagles do not normally eat carrion but will do so when it is available.
