African hawk-eagles eating together

17 April 2015

 

QUESTION:

Is it common for two African hawk-eagles to share a carcass without competing for it?

 

ANSWER:

Yes, in the video, shot late afternoon at the Leopard´s Sleeping Place, you can see two African hawk-eagles eating a carcass calmly together. One can see that they are still young, because of the brown feathers on the crop, chest and legs and also in the eyes that have yet to turn yellow as it does in adults. The fact that they are young and feeding together without competing indicates that they might be nestling mates.
