Adult African fish Eagles makes low level attacks on their prey, and because they are white underneath, their lack of camouflage is not disadvantage. It will take its prey out of the water with its powerful talons, and can pluck a fish half as long as a
man's arm from the water. Although fish Eagles mainly hunt in fresh water, if they are close to the coast, will hunt in the sea as well. Sometimes they will take young birds from water bird colonies such
as flamingo's Herons and cormorants, and will steal fish from birds such as stork and cormorants.
