Steppe Eagle Aquila nipalensis in the Hortobagy, Hungary, summer 2003

All photographs by Wesley Overman


In the summer of 2003, my friends Rob van Bemmelen, Ben Wielstra, Wesley Overman and I visited the Hortobagy National Parc in the east of Hungary, during our four week trip through Eastern Europe. A very extensive report of this trip, including a bomb of pics, can be found on our special site.

This bird was located after a tip by a local birder. It is probably a 3rd or 4th summer plumaged bird.

On the right and below are some nice shots of this bird.
