The stationary ones are much easier to photograph than the flapping ones - so here's some portraits from the Hawk Conservancy.
C&C welcome - all taken with my Nikon D7000 and 70-300 lens.

Nice collection where my pick is the secretary for both
its beauty and rendition. Other renditions are not opti-
mised and / or equally well performed

May I suggest…

Got to agree with hiss ,Daniel first off it’s a fish eagle not a secretary bird ,next the re.work looks like it was taken on ilford hp 800 film there’s that much grain in it . I don’t stick to the rule book with bird photography but hey dude if your gonna change someone’s work do it properly

Hissss… your own venom is affecting your reading capabilities. :dummy:
Oh I see what you meant now ,but putting that aside your rendering of the sea eagle is blown enough on the whites to render it unviewable and the noise has become so pronounced it’s what I would expect from someone that doesn’t have a clue ,if you must insist on doing birds and altering other folks pics at least get it right
