    1. It had just become a little bright. It was a rather dark morning otherwise. Had it been any earlier, it would have been tough to get this shot :-) Posted 7 months ago

The grey-headed fish eagle is a bird of prey. Like all eagles, it is in the family Accipitridae.

The grey-headed fish eagle is a largish stocky raptor at about 70–75 cm in length. Adults have dark brown wings and back, a grey head and reddish brown breast. The lower belly, thighs and tail are white, the latter having a black terminal band. Sexes are similar, but young birds have a pale buff head, underparts and underwing, all with darker streaking.
