Do African Crowned Eagles eat carrion? (1 Viewer)


I am aware than Golden Eagles and Bald Eagles sometimes eat carrion. Has it ever been recorded that Crowned eagles eat carrion too? Juveniles or adults?

What about the Harpy and Philippine eagles? Do they eat carrion?
Surprisingly, according to sources, the martial eagle rarely takes carrion and I guess its the same here with the crowned eagle.
Golden eagles, bald eagles, tawny eagles, etc surprisingly are as good scavengers as they are hunters (proabably better hunters than scavengers - e-.g. tawny eagles can be found among vultures and marabao storks).
