    Hi,
    Is this a juvenile blyth’s hawk eagle? Taken in Panti last Saturday. Saw a couple of them along different part of the trail. The crest resembles the one on a adult, but the tail resembles the tail of an oriential honey buzzard.

    SC,
    Thanks for confirming the ID.

    Rey,
    They are still around. You only need to spot them for a record shot.

    Still looking forward to what other guru has to say. :)

    Thanks all. It should be juvenile Blyth’s Hawk Eagle.

    PP,
    Don’t think so. The white tip on the crest should be broad, not narrow as shown in picture. Furthermore, they are in southern hemisphere and very uncommon here.

    Luenny,
    Loong Tat and I were at panti in the morning before going down to Mersing.

    Thanks Ming!…i was comparing the bars on the tails (adult) – wallace’s had 3 black bars whilst blyth’s only have two . the image here has 3 bars, so that was the reason for my suggestion :ashamed: …i guess as juv, probably, these will kept changing as well until it reaches adulthood and hence the confusion in id …noted from the field guide that as juv, both wallace and blyth can have four bars even on their tails….:huh what:
