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.

Good catch Ming.
Missed to get a record shot of this Bird.July 29, 2009 at 4:22 am #295727
Thanks for confirming the ID.
They are still around. You only need to spot them for a record shot.
Still looking forward to what other guru has to say.July 29, 2009 at 4:32 am #295729LuennyMember
Wow, nice catch. Eh, I though you went Mersing last Sat? How come you were at Panti?July 29, 2009 at 5:01 am #295741

how about juv wallace’s hawk eagle??July 30, 2009 at 4:03 pm #295895
Thanks all. It should be juvenile Blyth’s Hawk Eagle.
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.

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 …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….
