Update:
This isn't one of the sea-eagles (genus Haliaeetus), it's a true eagle (genus Aquila). My best estimate, especially if it originated from India, would be Tawny Eagle Aquila rapax (thanks to Merlin)


I think this is a Sea Eagle...I think the ranger from the park told me it was an Indian Sea Eagle (or something like that )-;...but I can't find him on the net..at least not immediately...
maybe 'with a little help from your friends'



Wiki:
Eagles are large birds of prey which inhabit mainly the Old World, with only two species (Bald Eagle and Golden Eagle) commonly found in North America, a few in South America, the (White-bellied Sea Eagle, Wedge-tailed Eagle) in Australia and the Philippine Eagle in the Philippine Archipelago. They are members of the bird order Falconiformes, family Accipitridae and belong to several different genera, not necessarily closely related to each other.

Bye and greetings

Annick:
This isn't one of the sea-eagles (genus Haliaeetus), it's a true eagle (genus Aquila). My best estimate, especially if it originated from India, would be Tawny Eagle Aquila rapax. It's a very fine portrait and I can find no fault with it. Excellent.
Best wishes, Nigel.

Hi Annick

Superb portrait shot, the composition is great and I like the pose, the expression is great, excellent detail on the feathers and nice colours too.

Un gran trabajo Annick con un maravilloso POV para este primer plano.
Excelente agudeza, donde se aprecia los detalles del plumaje, así como su cabeza... si nos esmeramos un poco, podemos verte reflejada en su ojo.
Perfecto DOF y trasfondo logrado.
Gracias por compartirla y saludos... Ricardo

A great work Annick with a wonderful POV for this close up.
Excellent sharpness, where it is appreciated the details of the plumage, as well as their head... if we take pains a little, we can see you reflected in their eye.
Perfect DOF and achieved background.
Thank you for sharing and greetings... Ricardo
