African Fish Eagle

African Fish Eagle Haliaeetus vocifer
Lake Ziway, Ethiopia
12 January 2014

     African Fish Eagle is quite common throughout much of the African continent and its piercing call is a familiar sound around most lakes and rivers. While its primary diet is fish, either caught or scavenged, it is an opportunistic feeder and does not hesitate to take advantage of other ready sources of food. 


  1. Beautiful photo of the bald eagle.

  2. It is indeed widespread and I found it much easier to identify than the "brown" eagles I saw in Africa. I suppose it does look like a Bald Eagle, albeit many miles away from North America. Nice picture david - keep them coming.

  3. Wow ...... ff you're a lucky man that you saw this beautiful eagle!
    Really great David!
