|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The photograph of Crested Serpent Eagle was taken in Kanha zone of the Kanha National Park.|
The Crested Serpent Eagle (Spilornis cheela) is a medium-sized bird of prey that is found in forested habitats across tropical Asia. Within its widespread range, there are considerable variations and some authorities prefer to treat several of its subspecies. All members within the species complex have a large looking head with long feathers on the back of the head giving them a named and crested appearance. The face is bare and yellow joining up with the ceres while the powerful feet are unfeathered and heavily scaled.(Source-Wikipedia)
