Lesser Fish Eagles

26th June 2010, Kemensah, Selangor.

I had the chance of taking new photos of what I previously identified as a pair of Grey-headed Fish-Eagles. With these new photos I can confirm that they are in fact  Lesser Fish-Eagles ( Ichthyophaga humilis ) local name: Lang Kangok. They lack the black & white bands at the tail.

The first two photos are of the female.
