Tawny Eagle 

(Aquila rapax) - 'Rhani' 


'Rhani' is the largest bird of our flying team with a 5-foot wingspan & she is a truly formidable sight on the wing. She is the "Queen" of the collection!

 

They inhabit Africa & can be found in both North & South of the Sahara desert. They can live until 45 years in captivity!

The Tawny Eagle was once considered a relative of the Steppe Eagle (Aquila nipalensis), however, it is now classed as its own species due to differences in anatomy, in particular the length of the gape flange "known as the rictus" which never extends beyond the middle of the eye in the Tawny Eagle. 

'Rhani' is Steven's Eagle. He originally trained her over 15 years ago whilst working at a Zoo. Sadly she was sold by the zoo owner for breeding. However this year in May 2019 she came back up for sale & there was no way Steven was going to let her pass him by. So they are reunited & even after 10 years apart, she recognised him by calling & chatting to him affectionately upon collection.

It was truly a beautiful moment!
