 Indian Spotted Eagle Pictures and Detail- 

I love all types of birds and it is always a great experience to take pictures of birds. However, people don't consider some birds good for them because they consider that these birds bring bad luck. The same is true for Indian Spotted Eagle, when I was taking its pictures, a few people told me that it is not good to view it and it may cause bad luck. I didn't listen to them and took these pictures.

When I saw these pictures of the Spotted Eagle on my laptop, then I found a beautiful creature of God, and I fell in love with it.  Why we still consider some the birds like owls, eagles, bats, etc as bad birds to humans. They are an integral part of our ecosystem and They are very innocent and never cause any harm to humans. In the modern world, we need to shed these false beliefs and start respecting all creatures of God. At present, Indian Spotted Eagle is put in the category of vulnerable birds because of its small and decreasing population less than 10000 remaining on earth. They have thick yellow colored legs and a big head as compared to the body.

It is not an easy task to take good pictures of a bird-like Indian spotted Eagle which flies very high in the sky. However, sometimes we get lucky and they come close to us. I was also lucky that this Indian spotted Eagle sat on a nearby pole with a piece of roti in its one foot. Initially, It thought that I and my camera is a threat to him and he even tried to threaten me. But with time, he realized that I am not going to cause him any harm so he settled down.

Indian spotted eagles feed on small birds, reptiles, frogs, mammals, and sometimes food left by humans like roti. It is common to find them in forests, fields, near trees, and vegetations. Their breeding season is from March to August and they make nests on the trees which is made of thick sticks.
