On a grey uncertain day at Tal Chappar.
Mature bird may be seen in this post (Link to blog post) from an earlier birding trip.
The parents of this bird were busy foraging nearby to feed this recent juvenile.
Glad I spotted this bird and added it to my list.

Camera used: Nikon D5100 DSLR with Tamron 150-600mm Lens.
