No 625 - Bateleur Eagle - Terathopuis ecaudatus   

About the Bird - an Artist's view

Bateleur is French for tumbler or tight rope walker. The bird gets its name from the strange way it flies.  

 If you are going to fly, wings and a tail (one would think are essential). The Bateleur has great wings, but an almost complete absence of a tail. Little wonder that it appears to loose balance in flight, as a birds tails are the steering mechanism. Why it has no tail, I have no idea, thank goodness I only paint them and had no part in the design.
