Bird seen on Al Qudra area. Maybe Steppe E?
It sure is. Great record!
Where was it?
Se. below for Peter's comment. Pale morph Greater Spotted Eagle
thanks Tommy. It was close to the Al Qudra lake, I walked to some dunes behind and saw it sitting on top of a dune
Well done. Not many records in the UAE each year
Sorry, it's a Greater Spotted Eagle!
It is, Peter. I was tricked by the pale colouring. So, possibly of the fulvescens colour morph?
Ok Peter, thanks for the feedback. I initially thought too it could be a GSE but the white tips on wings confused me. What are the key features made you conclude it was a GSE and not a SE?
Thanks Tommy and Camilo!
I can't describe it, but no doubt for Greater Spotted Eagle!
Just experience, I see them almost daily, over the winter time!
