The grey-headed Fish-eagle (Ichthyophaga ichthyaetus), is a largish stocky raptor with a relatively small head, longish neck and a powerful, grey beak. Adults have dark brown wings and back, a grey head and reddish brown breast. The lower belly, thighs and tail are white, the latter having a black terminal band. Both sexes are similar. Grey-headed Fish Eagle is sedentary and breeds in southern Asia, from India and Sri Lanka to south-east Asia and Philippines, and feeds almost exclusively on fish, caught with the talons while flying over the water surface. It watches for prey from a perch close to the water.
