Our neighbourhood Crested Serpent-eagle (Spilornis cheela malayensis) that we hear calling out while foraging most days around 10.30-11.30am. Today was resting almost at eye level around 9.30am (pre-feed) and allowed me some close images. One wing feather was displaced (above).

Some close-ups of face showing nictitating membrane (above) and the magnificent feet (below).
