Fish Eagle

They have an average body length of 63-73cm and a wingspan of around 190cm for males.
 They are found at large dams, lakes and river with large trees and also coastal lagoons.


As their name implies, they mostly eat fish up to 3kg in weight which they pick out of the water while flying over.
