Booted Eagle

Yet another booted eagle, this time a juvenile dark morph common to this region. the white markings either side of the head on the leading edge are sometimes referred to as landing lights and is distinctive to this species and the honey buzzard only. 

This individual has leucistic markings also which may disappear when it moults.
