Bird ID, please

Recommended Posts

Could somebody help me identify this little raptor - spotted near the Serengeti about three weeks ago?

just an afterthought:

 

Would you agree that he might be feeding from a young puff adder? I know it's all difficult to say but unfortunately I do not have any better pictures. In fact, this photo was taken off a video clip, so it's not even as sharp as a "proper" photo would be.

Looks like a black shouldered Kite to me.

Agreed. And it looks like a puff adder to me too, but definitely not a positive ID.

Brownish Eagles can be tricky but I'd suggest juvenile Tawny Eagle for this one. When and where did you see it? (Season and area generally help when trying to ID a bird.)

Thanks Michael and Kitty. I saw it a week ago in Ol Kinyei Conservancy in the Mara, Kenya. Here's another photo.
