International Journal of Primatology. Around stretches of East Africa, Crowned eagles usually live in wooded areas of rocky hills and narrow riverine strips, only rarely ranging into savanna surrounding the hills.
In South Africa, they occur in both lowland and montane evergreen forest, dense woodland, and forested ravines and gorges in open savannas and thornveld.
Crowned eagles live in pairs. They are largely sedentary and usually inhabit a fixed territory throughout the year.
Crowned eagles are considered nervous, constantly alert and on edge. However, their main hunting techniques require long periods of inactivity, spent sitting on a perch.
Crowned eagles may hunt alone or in pairs and mainly kill early in the morning and in the evening prior to sundown. These beautiful hunters may locate a suitable hunting spot by listening such as via the call of the noisy vervet monkey or watching for prey activity, though may also use habitual hunting perches where they've previously had hunting successes.
They often still-hunt, wherein they drop or stoop onto prey from a branch perch. Crowned eagles are highly vocal and have a noisy, undulating display flight.
The male performs an elaborate rise-and-fall display over the forest canopy both during the breeding season and outside as a territorial proposition.
Territorial displays consist of a series of steep dives and ascents, with a few wing-flaps at the top of each climb and descending circles and figures of eight.
During descents, eagles can drop as much as 60 m ft at a time before circling back up. During this display, the male is noisy, uttering a shrill kewee-kewee-kewee while throwing his head back.
The adult female may also perform independent display flights, uttering a lower kooee-kooee-kooee. Pairs also perform visually striking mutual displays, sometimes arising from the first type or when the pairs come together after a brief absence.
While awaiting food at the nest, both the female and the young produce high kwee-kwee-kwee. Crowned eagles are carnivores and most of their diet consists of mammals.
They hunt mainly small ungulates such as duikers, chevrotains , rock hyrax and small primates such as monkeys. Birds and large lizards are taken occasionally.
Crowned eagles are monogamous and mate for life. Pairs usually breed once every two years almost year-around, though egg-laying seems to peak from July to November.
After engaging in the breeding display, the pair starts to build a massive nest in a fork of a large forest tree, usually m ft above the ground.
While the female fetches more nesting material, the male tends to be more active in nest construction. The female lays 1 or 2 eggs usually just white, though may sometimes be overlaid with sparse red-brown markings.
Incubation lasts around 49 days done mainly by the female. The male brings food to the incubating female every 3 to 5 days.
The young hatch, covered in down, and first feathers appear in 40 days. If two eggs are laid, the younger one dies by starvation after being outcompeted for food by the older one or even directly killed by its older sibling.
After 40 days of age, the young is capable of feeding itself, though is often still fed. The young fledge at 90 to days but remains in the care of its parents for another 11 months.
It is estimated that most Crowned eagles reach breeding maturity at around five years old. Largest confirmed wingspan recorded is 1. Upperparts and head is dark in color, varying from dark grey to black sometimes with a tinge of blue.
Eyes are pale yellow to white. Feathers on legs are white with black spots, and talons and claws are large and powerful.
Tail is long and barred black and white. In flight, underwing coverts are chestnut, with the rest of the underwing white with prominent black markings.
Crowned eagles are mostly found in dense woodlands, montane forests, and rainforests. In protected areas with large open savannas, such as is common in East Africa, they are sometimes found along riverine forests and in rocky hillsides adjacent to the more open habitats and will rarely venture into the savanna.
If habitat is sufficient, they can also be found close to urban areas, especially in plantations.

Ecological niche Crowned eagles play an important role in the local ecosystem, controlling prey populations. Fun Facts for Kids The Crowned eagle is considered Africa's most powerful eagle when measured in terms of the weight of its prey items.
Crowned eagles are very large; overall, they are the 9th heaviest living eagle species. These massive hunters are also ferocious; some records from beneath a nest show the remains of a large, male Sooty mangabey weighing 11 kg 24 lb.
Crowned eagles are known for their spectacular displays. The displaying male may reach heights exceeding m 3, ft , sometimes even near the cloud level at over 2, m 6, ft above the ground.
Despite the spectacular and conspicuous nature of their display flights, Crowned eagles are sometimes considered "clumsy" fliers out in the open, lacking the grace and speed attributed to other eagles in a high-flying context.
Due to the unique wing shape the flight of the Crowned eagle is remarkably stealthy and quiet. References 1. Related Animals Griffon Vulture.
Himalayan Vulture. Rüppell's Vulture. At the top of each loop, he flaps his wings quickly several times, throws his head back, and calls loudly for up to 30 seconds.
At the nest, the male displays for the female by running around her with his wings raised. Breeding usually occurs between July and October, after the rains have stopped.
A forever home. The pair uses the same nest for many years until a new pair inherits it. The nest is made of sticks and lined with fresh, green branches.
The eagles add new material to the nest each year, and over time the nest can grow up to 8 feet 2. It typically rests in a to foot-tall 12 to 46 meters tree.
Natural selection. The female crowned eagle lays one or two eggs, which are white and speckled with reddish brown.
She incubates the eggs for most of the next 49 to 51 days while her mate brings her food every 3 to 5 days. Sometimes the pair swaps roles.
The chick hatches, covered in down, and develops its first feathers at about 40 days. If there are two chicks, the stronger usually the firstborn kills the weaker one soon after hatching.
The father brings fresh branches and food to the nest for the first two months, and both parents are very good at protecting their baby.
If anything approaches the nest, the parent attacks it fiercely. Growing into the crown. The chick's crest feathers or crown appear at about 2 months of age, and it has all of its feathers 76 days after hatching.
The young crowned eagle starts wing-flapping exercises to strengthen its flight muscles at 40 to 50 days old and is ready to take its first flight by the time it is 4 months old.
Because the youngster is dependent on its parents for so long, the mated pair must wait another year before breeding again.
This means the pair usually raises only one chick every two years. A juvenile crowned eagle looks very different from an adult.
It has light gray-brown feathers on its back, and its wings are edged in white, making the bird look like it has scales.
Its head, breast, and belly are white, and its wing and tail feathers have gray bars.A large, boldly-marked, crested eagle with a long tail and broad wings, resembling a massive goshawk.
