African Fish Eagle.

The African Fish Eagle has a wingspan of between 2m (male) and 2.4m(female). As the name implies, they dine mainly on fish, and live near freshwater lakes, rivers, reseviors, and even river-mouths.

The female will lay 1 - 3 eggs per season, but the first to hatch will normally kill the siblings which hatch a day or two later.

This photo was taken at the African Bird of Prey Sanctuary.

Beautiful bird! Looks similar to our American Bald Eagle.
