The Crested Serpent Eagle

On the trip to K.Gudi (Kyatharayanagudi, if you want to know) property of JLR, for the NTP 2010 meet, one raptor we all saw frequently was the

CRESTED SERPENT EAGLE

We saw the birds in sunshine:

Photobucket

and...I actually saw the Crested Serpent Eagle with a serpent...
