Twany Eagle

The Tawny Eagle (Aquila rapax) is a large bird of prey. Like all eagles, it belongs to the family Accipitridae. It was once considered to be closely related to the migratory Steppe Eagle. It is a resident breeder which lays 1–3 eggs in a stick nest in a tree, crag or on the ground. Throughout its range it favours open dry habitats, such as desert, semi-desert, steppes, or savannah, plains. This species is smaller and paler than the Steppe Eagle, although it does not share that species' pale throat. Immature birds are less contrasted than adults. The Tawny Eagle's diet is largely fresh carrion of all kinds, but it will kill small mammals up to the size of a rabbit, reptiles and small birds. It will also steal food from other raptors. The call of the Tawny Eagle is a crow-like barking, but it is rather a silent bird except in display.
