Birds of Prey, Tsavo

The Bateleur Eagle, a threatened bird living mainly in the open woodlands and tree savannas of Africa south of the Sahara, is believed to be good luck if it flies over natives’ houses or villages. These eagles are mainly silent and hunt carrion, the decaying flesh of dead animals, as well as reptiles, mammals, and small birds. Most interestingly, its feet and facial color change from pale to brilliant red depending on their mood.
