I'd appreciate a confirmation on the ID of this eagle please.

It was sighted in Chobe,

 

I wrote down that our guide said it was an African Hawk Eagle but to me it looks much more like a Tawny Eagle.

Not that we are experts but according to the splendid "raptors of Southern Africa" its a sub adult Tawney Eagle, the gape extending to under not past the eye and its being a sub adult explaining the dark eye. perhaps!
