Indian Spotted Eagle - Immature

Lesser Spotted Eagle
Indian Spotted Eagle is in our wish list from long time but we never had chance to click them. We went to our normal birding trip at Wild Ass sanctuary which situated in Little Ran of Kutch.

We just forget about it completely as we already have plenty of photographs of GSE. After around 10 month while processing the image we have slight doubt about bird’s ID. So we send this image to Raptor ID expert Nirav Bhatt and what we find is pleasant surprise. A long awaited wish list bird... it was Indian Spotted Eagle…! Finally we clicked that bird in camera without even knowing it.
