The Tawny Eagle (Aquila rapax) is officially recognized as having 3 dark color variations in the feathers: Shades of dark brown, shades of grey-brown or shades of brown-black. All 3 dark morph variants have distinctive darker feathered lines just above the eyes, and the flight feathers and tails are noticeably darker in appearance. There's also a pale morph variant.
The tawny eagle's diet is largely fresh carrion of all kinds, but it will kill small mammals up to the size of a rabbit, reptiles and birds. The wingspan is 160 to 180 cm. It has a long neck and relatively short wings.
The tawny eagle inhabits open woodlands and open dry lands such as desert, semi-desert, steppes, savannas and plains. They are also found near cultivated lands, settlements and slaughterhouses.
The tawny eagle species have an extremely large range and are considered least vulnerable.
