Verreaux’s (Giant) Eagle Owl

I saw a Verreaux’s Eagle Owl on my travels in Namibia last year and wanted to see another.  We were blessed with a view of this one, which was sitting in the tree outside of our tent in Pom Pom camp, Botswana.  The biggest owl in the region, its diet comprises mammals up to 2-3 kg, birds including raptors and other owls.
