White-bellied Sea-Eagle

Poet and Illustrator: Sam Pratt
A bird of prey…they are carnivores; preferring to eat turtles,
fish and sometimes sea snakes.
In winter they lay 1-2 eggs that hatch around 42 days after they
have been laid!
They love living near water and usually they have their own
favourite tree,
Gracefully they glide down from their tree to get to the ground.
For this species, the female is bigger than the male,
And… the female intimidates other birds to protect the nest!

Destruction of their habitat makes them endangered in Victoria!
So let’s not make this beautiful bird any more endangered than it already is!
