Crowned Hawk-Eagle

Stephanoaetus coronatus (Linnaeus, 1766)

The Crowned Eagle, also known as the African Crowned Eagle or the Crowned Hawk-Eagle (Stephanoaetus coronatus) is a large bird of prey found in sub-Saharan Africa; in Southern Africa it is restricted to eastern areas. Its preferred habitats are principally riparian woodlands and various forests. The Crowned Eagle is the only extant member of the genus Stephanoaetus. A second species, the Malagasy Crowned Eagle (Stephanoaetus mahery) became extinct after humans settled on Madagascar. Source: Wikipedia
