Black-breasted Snake Eagle

Circaetus pectoralis


The attractive Black-breasted Snake Eagle is an African raptor that is surprisingly not uncommon in desert environments such as that around Uis where I photographed this bird in flight. It is well known for its abilities to hover as it searches out for snakes.
