Long-crested eagle (Lophaetus occipitalis). KwaZulu-Natal
The Long-crested Eagle feeds mainly on small rodents. It drops from an exposed perch on its prey, and catches it. It does not hunt on the wing. It is often perched on trees on the road sides, fences or telegraph poles. It hunts generally in the early morning or at dusk, and it rests during the day under the shadow of a tall tree.
The females are generally slightly larger than the male but often have a shorter crest.
