Indian spotted eagle (Aquila hastata)

The Indian spotted eagle (Aquila hastata) is a large bird of prey, a raptor and an accipiter.

The Indian spotted eagle has light brown feathers with white spotted markings on its back, head, and neck. It has a broad head and a wide mouth with a sharp, downward curved, black beak. Its cere (at the base of its beak) is light-beige. Its eyes are dark brown. Its upper tail is light brown with white bars. It has yellowish feet with strong, sharp talons (claws).

It grows to about 60 centimetres (24 inches) tall, with a wingspan of over 150 centimetres (59 inches).

The Indian spotted eagle is native to Asia, in countries such as Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Nepal and Pakistan.

It prefers tropical forests and subtropical dry forests. It hunts small mammals, reptiles and birds.

It nests in rocky areas. The female lays 1-2 eggs in a stick nest lined with leaves in a tree or among rocks. The eggs hatch after about 45 days. The father feeds the chicks. The chicks have all of their flight feathers and are ready to leave the nest after 70-75 days.
