Crowned Eagle vs. Chevrotain

I found this incredible video when I was searching for videos of one of my favorite eagles - the Crowned eagle. The Crowned eagle is an amazingly powerful hunter found in the thick forests in South Africa. BTW, the Chevrotrain does not occur in SA, only further north.

Me neither, Patrick...

Crowned Eagles are absolute stunners:
I once saw one circling far away over a valley in South Africa's Cape Province (Wilderness). At first I thought it was a strange Buteo buzzard being mobbed by two songbirds until I lifted my binoculars and found out the "songbirds" were indeed two buzzards!!
