Stephanoaetus coronatus  Crowned Eagle  Kroonarend
African Crowned Eagle
Muisvogelkraal, Nov 2020

A presumed breeding resident. Rare. Six records of this forest-loving species are currently known from the Waterberg: Welgevonden Game Reserve (Sep 2017, Boschhoek Dec 2017, Lapalala Wilderness (Sep 2018), Voorwaarts (Oct 2018), Waterberg Game Farm (Jan 2019), Muisvogelkraal (Nov 2020) and a displaying male at one site suggests that this was linked to breeding activity. If the case, this would be a large extension of the species' known breeding range.
