various Eagles

Harpy Eagle
Harpy Eagle
The HARPY EAGLE, Harpia harpyja, is the largest eagle in the western hemisphere, found from southern Mexico through most of the northern half of South America. For its size and weight (up to 9 kg for females and 5 kg for males), its wingspan is relatively short at 6 foot to 6' 7" to negotiate the trees, since it lives high in the tree canopy. The Harpy will take prey as large as big macaws, monkeys and even sloths. Male and female have similar plumage and are particularly striking when they raise their head crests.

These White-tailed Eagles were near the southernmost point of their "all year" (non-migrant) range in southeastern Kazakhstan (a long way from the sea for sea eagles - but there are large lakes).

The WHITE-BELLIED SEA EAGLE, Haliaeetus leucogaster, is a large eagle from India, southeast Asia and Australasia. Its front is completely white (no photo of front yet). Aerial courtship displays locking talons and stooping/diving are spectacular. It eats mainly fish, eels and sea snakes from coasts and inland waters.
