A very good day spotting wildlife on a tour of the lakes around Lakes Entrance in Victoria. Eagles, swans, seals, dolphins...

 

This is a White-bellied Sea-Eagle (Haliaeetus leucogaster). It has white on the head, rump and underparts and dark grey on the back and wings. As in other raptors (birds of prey), Males (2.5 kg - 3.7 kg) are slightly smaller than females (2.8 kg - 4.2 kg).The wingspan is about 1.8 m - 2 m. Young Sea-Eagles are brown as juveniles than slowly become to resemble adults in a patchwork manner, acquiring the complete adult plumage by their fourth year.

 

White-bellied Sea-Eagles are a common sight in coastal and near coastal areas of Australia. In addition to Australia, the species is found in New Guinea, Indonesia, China, south-east Asia and India

 

The White-bellied Sea-Eagle feeds mainly off aquatic animals, such as fish, turtles and sea snakes, but it takes birds and mammals as well. It is a skilled hunter, and will attack prey up to the size of a swan. Sea-Eagles also feed on carrion such as sheep and fish along the waterline. They harass smaller birds, forcing them to drop any food that they are carrying. Sea-Eagles feed alone, in pairs or in family groups.

An adult pair of White-bellied Sea-Eagles were out fishing when I was photographing the Gannets. I had enough photos of the Gannets and decided to concentrate of the Sea-Eagles. I really wanted one where the bird was flying over the blue ocean and looking back over at me. The look on the bird says it all. At times they were right over the top of me which was an amazing feeling and a bit nervy, but still pretty cool. In the end I got few hundred photos of the pair. They are such beautiful birds :-)

The eagle is the proud symbol of Langkawi. This one is the White-bellied Fish Eagle, one of the largest raptors in South East Asia.

 

... shot taken while on a holiday in Langkawi. Chartered a boat and went island hopping ....the boatman stopped at an island and began to throw chicken bits into the water. what's up?

 

... to my astonishment, eagles began circling above us and took turns to dive down and grab the food with their talons. talk about discipline and what a sight it was!

 

.. i should have been more alert haha aware of the program/tour. wished had more time to think, adjust settings and switched to the telephoto lens. the pics could have been nicer. haiyaaa ... haha there's always next time :)

 

Origin of the name Langkawi

 

This island was used to be the home of eagles and it also rich with marbles. Since that eagle in the Malay word is "Helang" while marble in Sanskrit is "Kawi", so by putting these words together it reads as "Helangkawi". Hence it became Langkawi.

 

The origin name of Langkawi also found in Tun Mohamad Zahir's book, entitled "The Legends of Langkawi". In the book, it stated that the word "Langka" in Sanskrit means beauty and "Wi" means many. After putting these words together, it becomes Langkawi that means many beautiful islands.

This bird took off from quite near to us and then came back a couple of times to have a look at us apparently. I had trouble keeping it in frame and didn't really get a sharp shot.

The white-bellied sea eagle, also known as the white-breasted sea eagle, is a large diurnal bird of prey in the family Accipitridae.

Scientific name: Haliaeetus leucogaster

White-bellied Sea Eagle, Haliaetus leucogaster, Helang siput

A trip into a mangrove swamp area gives me the opportunity to photograph this magnificent raptor.
