Immature bateleur eagle (Terathopius ecaudatus) close-up. This bird was seeking shade in summer and like many immature birds is very relaxed when approached carefully. Adults are usually more skittish and do not always allow close approach by humans. This bird's common name comes from French word meaning juggler or acrobat. It performs spectacular aerial manoeuvres with its mate during courtship. This diurnal eagle, the only member of the genus Terathopius, is carnivorous, spending most of the day in the air, gliding quickly over the ground in search of birds, reptiles, mammals and large insects. It is classified by the IUCN as near-threatened. The bateleur is reasonably common in conservation areas but scarce elsewhere. It lives in open woodland, scrub and savannin Africsouth of the SaharDesert. Filmed in the Auob riverbed in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, in Southern Africa.
