Martial Eagle {Polemaetus Bellicosus}

Dare to soar - how successful you are is determined by your attitude.

W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm - 12" x 8" unframed

The largest eagle in Africa, the Martial eagle, weighs in at almost 14 pounds (6.5 Kg.) and has a wingspan of about 6 feet 4 inches. It is 32 inches long. This eagle can be found throughout the African savannah, in any type of terrain, from mountain to flat plains, and from the edge of deserts to wooded country.

 An impressive and fearsome-looking bird, it can bring down an impala, though it usually takes much smaller prey, especially sandgrouse, francolins and other ground-dwelling birds. It also takes mongoose, squirrels, hares, small antelope, Guineafowl, lizards and young ostrich.
