Another beautiful entry into Piran Cafe’s small but growing collection of bird stock photo galleries, the Black-Chested Buzzard-Eagle (Geranoaetus melanoleucus), aka Chilean blue eagle, black buzzard-eagle, or grey buzzard-eagle, is typically found in open hilly terrain over much of South America, from northern Colombia to the southern tip of Tierra del Fuego.

Size Matters and description (via The Eagle Directory):

Length: 62-80 cm
Wingspan: 175-200 cm
Weight: 1.7-3.2 kg

and

Black-Chested Buzzard Eagles are blue-gray in color with black and white markings. They have gray shoulders barred with black and a black to dark gray breast, while the belly and underparts are white and thinly barred. The wedge-shaped tail is black with a light gray terminal band. The wings are barred blue-gray and long and broad, a physical trait that is characteristic to the species. The head is gray to dark gray and the chin and throat are light gray. The feet, legs, and cere are yellow, and the eyes are brown.
