Andaman Serpent-Eagle

Spilornis elgini (Blyth, E 1863)

The Andaman Serpent Eagle,, also known as the Andaman dark-serpent eagle or the dark serpent eagle, is a medium-sized bird in the family Accipitridae, the raptor family, that is only found in India on the Andaman Islands. It is currently classified as vulnerable and is experiencing population declines. This species, unlike Spilornis cheela, is incredibly understudied and so many things about its behaviour and ecology are still widely unknown. Source: Wikipedia
