Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Spectacular large black eagle. Distinctive in flight, when it shows a long tail and long wings that pinch in at the base. There are white patches toward the ends of the wings and on the back. Immature is brownish on the back and streaked below but still shows white panels in the wings and the characteristic shape. Found around cliffs and other rocky terrain in mountainous areas. Call is an upslurred scream. Separated from Long-crested Eagle by different shape: lankier, with a longer tail and narrower, more pointed wings.
