African Fish Eagle

The African fish eagle is one of the best known of all birds of prey, partly due to the wide usage of footage of the bird catching fish from the water. The juvenile of this species is a drab brown with a whitish head and a white bib that is streaked with brown. The transition from juvenile to adult takes around five years and, once this bird reaches adult plumage, it will have a white head, breast and mantle, offset by a chestnut brown abdomen and shoulders and black wings.
