Waiting for the White-bellied Sea eagle

By

My place overlooks the lower Seletar reservoir. When I’m lucky, I had managed to see a couple of white-bellied sea eagle soaring high in the sky.

Yesterday was a rainy day. A good time to wait for the sea-eagle to appear after the rain. I waited and waited and waited for the rain to stop.

Finally, the rain stopped and I saw something white flying in the sky. My heart skipped a beat. Has the sea-eagles decided to visit the reservoir at last?

Alas, I was wrong. It was a kite. No, not a Brahminy Kite. I wouldn’t mind if it was a Brahminy Kite or any other Kite. But not this one.

Today afternoon, my husband spotted two sea-eagles hovering near the reservoir while driving. Before I could take a shot, the raptors flew off! So disappointing.

Hello Justjan Welcome to Ispyabird! I have a daughter named Jan and at first I thought you were she joining this website. Isn't it wonderful being able to share our love of the beautiful bird creation with each other? There are so many new things available today that I would have loved when I was young. I have a Kodak Easy share digital camera - nothing complicated nor very expensive. You have achieved some great pictures with yours. Enjoy!

Hi Simplylyn, I'm so glad I joined this website. Like you, my camera is not those DSLR either. So many times, those feather friends were not captured well. But thanks for your compliment. I'll look out for your photos. Cheers!
