" Bright Eyes, shining like fire" by 

The Tawny Eagle (Aquila rapax) is a large bird of prey. Like all eagles, it belongs to the family Accipitridae. It was once considered to be closely related to the migratory Steppe Eagle, Aquila nipalensis, and the two forms have previously been treated as conspecific. They were split based on pronounced differences in morphology and anatomy;123 two molecular studies, each based on a very small number of genes, indicate that the species are distinct but disagree over how closely related they are.4

It breeds in most of Africa both north and south of the Sahara Desert and across tropical southwestern Asia to India. It is a resident breeder which lays 1–3 eggs in a stick nest in a tree, crag or on the ground.

Throughout its range it favours open dry habitats, such as desert, semi-desert, steppes, or savannah, plains.

birds of prey

My Formative years were spent between two wartime airfields, so each night was spent sleeping in shelters, and school was always tense as dogfights were being fought overhead,
We made our own amusement in those days, and presents were second hand wooden toys if any could be found.
My teenage life found me on Motorbikes and fast cars.
My Later life was dogged by peaks and troughs of health problems.
