One of the evenings in Corbett (from my trip to India earlier this year) gave me a nice photo opportunity. A Changeable Hawk-eagle had taken a Ruddy Shelduck as prey. He was sitting on the river bank feeding on the prey when we drove by with the jeep. Funny sight as the duck is almost as large as the eagle and he tried to move his prey away from the river bank several times. Also the river bank is home to the River Lapwings and as they didn’t like the visit, they tried to chase the eagle away. I hope you enjoy the pics!
