African Fish Eagle, Haliaeetus vocifer, Maleme Dam, Matopos National Park, Zimbabwe

With the water in Maleme dam very low at the moment there are plenty of fish for the Fish Eagle to catch in shallow water. This Dam is not spring fed like some of the others so it dries up quite fast usually. The Fish Eagles have two chicks in the nest as of 10 August 2016. Usually one chick kills the other in the "Cain & Abel" scenario.
