Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small, stocky eagle often mistaken for a kite. Both light and dark morphs occur in varying frequencies throughout its extensive range. In flight note diagnostic black wingtips and tail barring. Easily confused with Whistling Kite, but Little Eagle has shorter tail and dark leading edge to the wings. Can raise feathers on the back of the head to form a small black crest. Usually solitary.
