yes, now I searched and looked for that it is quite obvious.. gosh what a grand colour change from juvenile to adult.. that is really amazing. I do have an adult one but the photo is so dark it does not do him justice.. hopefully will see another one one day. They are beautiful. That is great, thanks!

re confusing vulture... I had a better look around and now I think this is actually a Juvenile Batueler Eagle... any thoughts?

Thanks Ashley.. yes, I am also confused... He looks quite like one because his head feathers are all fluffed up, and face is bare, and the wings are vulture like, but he doesn't have the black eye or the beard, and the legs are not as heavily feathered as the bearded, and there is quite a distinctive line across the end of the wing... and the length of the tail etc. Its very difficult sometimes with young ones they can vary so much. They are not great photos, I think only taken from a moving vehicle, I didn't get to stop. Should I change him back to un ID?

Thanks Ashley, I wasn't ignoring, I just didn't know what to call it. I will just put in the Genus. Thanks!

Hi Josh, Thanks for the ID.. do you think it is a Juvenile then? Its just I also thought of bearded because of the head feathers. But the face is so completely different from all the images for Beardeds have quite a distinctive black eye stripe and the little beard.
Is it because it is a young one? This juvenile plumage is really giving me a hard time in ID's.
