Fish Eagle with Fish in Flight

By ugly  
The African Fish Eagle (Haliaeetus vocifer)[2] or – to distinguish it from the true fish eagles (Ichthyophaga), the African Sea Eagle – is a large species of eagle that is found throughout sub-Saharan Africa wherever large bodies of open water occur that have an abundant food supply. It is the national bird of Zimbabwe and Zambia and South Sudan. As a result of its large range, it is known in many languages.[3] Examples of names include: Visarend in Afrikaans; Aigle Pêcheur in French;[4] Hungwe in Shona, and Inkwazi in isiZulu.

This species may resemble the Bald Eagle in appearance; though related, each species occurs on different continents, with the Bald Eagle being resident in North America.

Excellent capture, I agree it is very similar to the North American Bald Eagle, with the white head and tail, we have just returned from Alaska where the Bald Eagle is easily seen in the wood land near to the rivers.
Kindest Regards, Burnsie
