Raptor Facts

Tawny Eagles can often be seen competing with Bateleur Eagles eating large amounts of termites around a mound. A very agile, bouyant eagle they can produce spectacular stoops at up to 100mph. Young Tawny Eagles also form delinquant ‘gangs’ to steal food from other birds of prey.

Some young Tawny Eagles are killed in the nest due to inexperienced adults returning with venomous snakes that aren’t dead!
