Pallas's Fish Eagle

Pallas's Fish Eagle

  Haliaeetus leucoryphus
Jim Corbett National Park, Uttarakhand, India - 5 januari 2016

This photo shows a rare moment when the Mugger Crocodile gets mugged on its fish by the eagle. Later on I will upload a serie of images from this occasion.
The vulnerable Pallas’s Fish-Eagle was absolutely one of the top 5 most desired species on the tour. I strive to photograph all 10 Sea-Eagles of the world (have seen them all) and this one was a new photography tick for me. Unfortunately I failed on the Lesser Fish-Eagle (which we saw) to complete the set.
