White-bellied fish eagle (Haliaeetus leucogaster) is a huge powerful raptor that preys on anything from small mammals, birds, fish and snakes. This is one of Australia’s biggest birds of prey, second only to the Wedge-tail Eagle.

The Wedge-tail Eagles (Aquila audax) are Australia’s largest raptor, with a 2.5m wingspan and a diamond shaped tail they are unmistakable in flight and with talons bigger than my hands they can take prey up to the size of lambs or foxes…..seriously impressive bird!
