Martial Eagle taking a bath

Posted on April 30, 2008

Even the largest of the eagles must take a bath from time to time. We were very lucky to have come across this Martial Eagle in the river…

Initially Raymond our Ranger thought it may be fishing. It plucked a chest feather and dropped it into the river, watching it intently as it floated away. Eventually it decided to bath, returning to land with it’s wings open to dry. It flew off when a vehicle approached from the other side. I took over 40 pics of this awesome experience. 2008-04-29 – Richard Buy
