Adamuz, Cordoba Province.

An amazing day with Agustin from Aspasín Hides.

Bonelli's Eagle (Aguila-azor Perdicera / Hieraaetus faciatus) the Male.
I met    at 09:00 in Adamuz and along with 3 other Spanish Guys and we were taken out to a spot out in the countryside not too far away where we set our selves up and settled down to photograph a pair of Bonelli's Eagles (Aguila-azor Perdicera / Hieraaetus faciatus) and we did not have to wait long before the Male dropped in.

He was later followed by the stunning female, both birds stayed for about 30mins before they flew off.
