Verreaux’s Eagles Nesting in Lolldaiga Hills

Two days ago, on 29 May 2015, we found an active Verreaux’s eagle (Aquila verreauxi) nest near the northwest corner of Lolldaiga Hills Ranch. From our one-night camp, located about 200 m from the nest, we watched the adult pair flying to and from the nest and hunting along the ridges of the nearby granitic hills.
