The Crested Serpent Eagle (Spilornis cheela) is a medium-sized bird of prey that is found in forested habitats across tropical Asia. There are several subspecies, and all the members within the species complex have a large looking head with long feathers on the back of the head giving them a maned and crested appearance. The face is bare and yellow joining up with the ceres while the powerful feet are unfeathered and heavily scaled. They fly over the forest canopy on broad wings and tail has wide white and black bars.

A good looking Eagle from the low lands of Nepal, Joydeb.
The dorsal POV with the bird's head turned gives a classic look to this sharp and precise capture.
