[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A little eagle chick found in Selous Gamer Reserve in the south of Tanzania on the way to a gamedrive.
I'm not shore about the identification of this one, therefor no facts about it. I think my guess is African Fishe Eagle, but maybe someone here can help me?
I'll write some facts later if we can get a ID of it.

Such a cute fellow!!!

Hello Ronny,
So adorable and cute!Beautiful capture.Details and catching light on eyes made it attractive.
Thanks for sharing,

It could also be a pigeon African martial eagle that lives from the mid to southern Africa (excluding South Africa)

Gorgeous photography with high definition and with fantastic eye contact.
Congratulations, Ronny!

From Argentina, Hernan Bortondello a hug.

Hello Ronny,
Hawk-eagles do have black spots or dots on their white feathers. So this one looks like an African Hawk-eagle, hieraaetus spilogaster, but I'm not sure.
Fantastic photo in superb sharpness and details. Great frontal POV in very beautiful natural colours. Nice contrasting background.

Indeed Ronny,
It is such a cute fellow this nice little chick. Excellent details and focus. It is a lovely capture.

Hello Ronny,
What a cute eagle chick you have photographed. It is such a bright eyed little fellow with a very dark bill. I really like your choice of a vertical frame, while the tight crop gives us a great look at it's beautiful features and colors.
