Artist's Description

Black ink sketch and colour wash on Bockingford 300gsm
.
Link to my calendar Birds of Africa
.
The Black Eagle is a fairly common resident and one of the most thoroughly researched eagles in Southern Africa.

These raptors are highly territorial and are often seen gliding together as they mate for life and assist each other in hunting sorties, hence their high success rate. In undisturbed natural habitat, hyraxes form up to 90% of prey, but small mammals, birds and reptiles are also caught.

The Black Eagle is the finest of the genus Aquilla – a truly magnificent coal black bird with a white back and V on the shoulders. The handsome plumage is enhanced by consummate grace in flight. When perched, the small head and tapering neck gives the eagle an almost regal appearance.
