3197. White-bellied Sea Eagle

White-bellied Sea Eagle Haliaeetus leucogaster. (what did I think of to write on auto-pilot "White-tailed" in thne morning?). Observed a pair of these very elegant sea eagles yesterday near the Trinity island. Do active birding from early morning - thus little time for LJ or other things on PC. Tomorrow leave Cairns to Daintree & surroundings, likely very slow & unreliable connection there, if at all, may be will do 1-2 photo'sd per day then via mobile uploads to Facebook.

Белобрюхий орлан. Изящный для орлана, сравнимый размерами со скопой, чуть крупнее и конечно с гордо-орланьей посадкой. Видели вчера красивую пару.
