A beautiful and rare depiction of this young (1-1/2 yr. old) Bateleur's dorsal aspect (4th image). We estimated the wing-span to be about 4 feet. Note the short tail, characteristic of the species, even in adulthood. At this age, the bird does it's own hunting. (Please see captions of previous 3 images). [Khwai, Moremi NP, Botswana].
