Artist's Description

Chilean Blue Eagle also known as the Black-chested Buzzard-eagle.

Bird of prey found in South America. It is the only member of the genus Geranoaetus. It belongs in the hawk and eagle family Accipitridae and is allied to the Buteo hawks.

The Black-chested Buzzard-eagle is readily identified in flight by its short wedge-shaped tail scarcely protruding from its long, broad wings.It is usually possible to make out the generally white underparts with the dark chest-band and tail but you are less likely to see its grey upperparts.

It is found in mountainous or hilly terrain where it spends a lot of time soaring while looking for prey. This consists of mammals such as rabbits, some birds, snakes and carrion. It nests in high trees or on rocky cliffs.
