The Shona people believe the Chapungu bird or Bateleur eagle is a good omen, bringing protection and good fortune.

These high-flying acrobats of the African skies get their name from the French word for "tumbler," and they can often be seen turning somersaults and performing other feats of aerial acrobatics. Bateleur eagles have bright red faces and legs and a black-tipped beak. They hunt small mammals, insects, and reptiles - especially snakes - but they will also eat carrion, which is the flesh of dead animals.

Bateleur eagles mate for life and females usually lay a single egg at a time.

I found these pictures sitting in the My Documents folder in my computer. I have no idea how they got there or where they came from. It must have been a too much tequila not enough rational thinking kind of night. If one or more of them belongs to you and you don't want them here - I'll be happy to remove them.
