2022 Australian White-Bellied Sea-Eagle

2022 Australian White-Bellied Sea-Eagle.

https://sea-eaglecam.org/video.html
The White-bellied Sea-Eagle (Haliaeetus leucogaster) is a fairly common sight along the coasts and inland rivers of Australia, as well as further afield. Even as our second largest raptor, little is known about their complete breeding cycle, from nest building to fledging. The huge nest of large sticks is commonly placed in a high tree and the nest may be used for many years in succession.
The Parramatta River Sea-Eagles are often seen during the day on their prominent mangrove perch, loafing or feeding on a mullet or other fish from the wetlands. They may also be seen soaring overhead on up-swept wings. The nest is placed high in an Iron Bark tree in the Newington Nature Reserve and has been used by a succession of Sea-Eagles over the years. Each year the nest has been monitored and valuable observations made.
Volunteers from the BirdLife Australia Southern NSW, Discovery Centre placed cameras high in the nest tree. This will provide a wonderful opportunity to closely monitor breeding behaviour at the nest.
Eagle Watch continues and anyone visiting the Discovery Centre during opening times on weekends may watch the live action as well as recordings of previous interesting behaviour.

---------------------------------------------------
The nest has been built in a Eucalyptus fibrosa Broad-leaved Ironbark tree. The nest is at approximately 22-25 metres / 72-82 feet height up the tree and the tree is approximately 40 metres/131 feet total height. Nest dimensions are 1.8 x 1.4 x 1.1 metres (5.9 x 4.6 x 3.6 feet)

:) Just an interesting fact: Which is correct meter or metre?
“Metre” is the British spelling of the unit of length equal to 100 cm, and “Meter” is the American spelling of the same unit.
