The Fish Eagle

We have a lot of bird-life where we live, and the sounds never stop – something I’ll never tire of. But I also I love to see the larger birds in action when travelling, and whilst we get some eagles in the mountains, I remember a fabulous fish eagle that we came across in Kenya once…

We spotted him on the edge of a large lake, just perched there keeping an eye on business; waiting for his next dinner I guess. And here it was…

It was an incredible sight to see him in action, and then to see his with his catch!

This was his domain…

Oh, and here was ‘home’. I wondered if there was a Mrs Eagle around too, or perhaps kiddos too high up to go check it out.

Just one of those memories I wanted to share… courtesy of this small cafe whose internet I’m ‘borrowing’ whilst slowly drinking a soda 🙂

  6. Well I’m so glad you managed to share those fabulous photos. Was this on Lake Victoria by any chance? I went there once and saw hippos in the lake and deadly water snakes as well as a lot of water hyacinth which was causing big problems for the locals. Great memories ~ thanks for reminding me!
