Photographer's Note

The White Bellied Sea Eagle spends most of its day soaring, or perched on rocks or trees at the water's edge from which it hunts.

It builds its nest on a high tree or sometimes on a rock. It is a large structure, that both help to build and into which two, or occasionally three eggs are laid. Incubation is carried out mainly by the female, with occasional relief by the male for around 50 days.
The young are tended by the female for 65-70 days until fledging takes place, and it is not unusual for two young to be successfully reared. Independence comes about 6 months later.

The hunting range of a pair can be quite small and they tend to favour the same series of perches, from which they fish day after day (although they also fish from a soaring flight).
