A Colorful Eagle With an Uncertain Future

Bateleur eagles are majestic birds. Despite their medium size, their wingspans stretch up to six feet long. Endemic to Africa and parts of the Arabian Peninsula, these avians have bright red faces and feet, with brown and black patterned feathers. Bateleurs are carrion eaters, and will show up with vultures to eat dead carcasses. Unfortunately, a shrinking habitat has caused a major drop in its global population.
