That's a great picture you've taken of this young buzzard-eagle Luis.

I think this must be a different age to the juvenile in flight in The Opus, and am guessing your one is and older individual now beginning to develop adult plumage (whitish markings on the head and a white patch on the upper belly)?

Any chance you know for sure lad? I'd love to add this image to the article too, but would like to be able to label it properly.

Many thanks for sharing him with us my friend.
