Bonelli's Eagle

Aquila fasciata

1

A medium-sized eagle with an athletic build, featuring streaked whitish underparts against dark wings and tail. Juveniles display rufous undersides and lack the adult''s wide dark tail band. Typically inhabits forests, mountains, or occasionally more open environments in winter, often in secluded areas. Nests are constructed on cliffs, ledges, or within caves. Recognizable in flight by bulging secondaries and the slim wing-body junction. Frequently observed soaring over far-off ridgelines, displaying distinctive shallow wing "fingers" in contrast to other eagles' deeper fingers.
