African Fish Eagle Haliaeetus vocifer
This 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. Its haunting call has become the iconic sound of the African bush.
This image was captured on the Chobe River, near Kasane, northern Botswana, Southern Africa.
