Verreaux's Eagle Owl chick

Birds of Prey

The Samburu complex has a wide variety of birds, including many species of raptors. On the left, there is a Verreaux's Eagle Owl Chick, showing the diagnostic feature of that species, the pink eyelids, which are kept into adulthood.
Below left, there is an Egyptian Vulture with a young Lappet-faced Vulture - the Little and Large of East African Vultures.
Below right is a young Martial Eagle.
At the bottom of the page are two pictures of Eastern Pale Chanting Goshawk. In the left-hand picture, the prey is a gamebird chick, and in the bottom-right image, the prey is an Unstriped Ground Squirrel - you can see its face.
