african fish eagle, african fish eagles

The closest relative of the African Fish Eagle appears to be the critically endangered Madagascar Fish-eagle. As in all sea-eagle species pairs, this one consists of a white-headed species (the African Fish Eagle) and a tan-headed one. These are an ancient lineage of sea-eagles, and as such have dark talons, beaks, and eyes (Wink et al. 1996). Both species have at least partially white tails even as juveniles.
