The magnificent White-bellied Sea-Eagle has "white on the head, rump and underparts and dark grey on the back and wings. In flight the black flight feathers on the wings are easily seen when the bird is viewed from below. The large, hooked bill is grey with a darker tip, and the eye is dark brown. The legs and feet are cream-white, with long black talons (claws)." (Birdlife Australia: http://www.birdlife.org.au/bird-profile/... )
Perched on the branches of mangroves at the beach, Point Torment, Kimberley. See pic 3.
Always a good day when one of these beautiful birds hangs around :)
