Roy Mangersnes - The Hawk Eagle

The Norwegian name of the Bonelli's Eagle is haukørn, meaning the Hawk Eagle. When I first saw this bird up close from a hide in Catalonia I instantly understood were it got it's name. The raw power of this bird is same I know from the Goshawk, and at the same time it has the graze of the Golden Eagle. This is one amazing bird!

Location: Catalonia, Spain
