[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Long-crested Eagle Lophaetus occipitalis is a small but handsome Eagle. It is rather common in Uganda and was most often seen inside villages on power lines looking for rats, sometimes hunting only a few meters away from people. This simply shows that raptors are not persecuted in these countries. In Europe most raptors will not be approachable closer than a few hundred meters, exceptions may be found inside towns nowadays (Sparrowhawk, Kestrel or Peregrine) where hunting does not exist
