Eagle

Taken at Kirthar NP in Sindh, Pakistan

Is it a Tawny, Steppe or Great Spotted?


To me it appears as if it is either a juvenile Tawny, Great Spotted pale morph - I believe I can almost see a white comma on wing. Could be a very pale Steppe too as its proportions except size seems similar to other Steppe with it.

looks perfect for GSE fulvescens to me with long feet, fine barring ending before tip just visible in pic 2 and a bit smaller size as well as long feet
