Grey-headed Fish Eagle

Icthyophaga ichthyaetus


Large grey/brown and white eagle with grey head. A white tail with black terminal band.


Generally found near inland areas of water and less frequently on the coast. This bird was photographed at the Botanical Gardens in downtown Singapore on Swan Lake.


Although has a status of Near Threatened (NT), I have observed this bird quite often at this site over the last couple of years. Easy meal to be had in this well stocked lake.
