Description : White-tailed Eagle is a large,dark brown raptor with broad parallel sided wings and a short white wedged shaped tail.Male smaller than female.Their adult looks dark brown above and greyish below.It got a large yellow bill,irises and feet.The juvenile has a blackish-brown body. White-tailed eagles spend much of their day perched on trees or crags, and may often not move for hours. Perhaps up to 90% of a day may be spent perched, especially if weather is poor.[5][34] Also, they will alternate periods of soaring with perching, especially flying over water or well-watered areas, but do considerably less soaring on average than do golden eagles. Pairs regularly roost together, often near to their nest, either on a crag or tree or crevices, overhung ledges or small isolated trees on a crag.
