Madagascar Fish Eagle

Its closest relative is the African Fish-eagle, Haliaeetus vocifer. Together, they form a distinct species pair lineage of sea-eagles, which separated soon after the divergence of the genus; they retain the ancestral dark beak, talon, and eye, but unlike other Haliaeetus species, they always have at least partially white tails, even while juvenile. As in other sea-eagle species pairs, one species has a tan head, while the other has a white one.

The Madagascar Fish Eagle is classified as Critically Endangered (CR), facing an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild.

Description: The Madagascar fish eagle is a large bird of prey found along the lakes, rivers and coastal waters of Madagascar's west coast. Its call is loud and melodious, similar to that of its close relative, the African fish eagle. The Madagascar fish eagle is threatened by hunting and loss of habitat. There is only a small and rapidly declining population left in the wild. More

The island endemic Madagascar fish eagle (Haliaeetus vociferoides) is currently listed by IUCN as critically endangered, with a known population of 222 individuals recorded during the last survey in 1995. The species’ conservation status was assigned based on an assumption of a recent and continuing population decline. The fish eagle is currently patchily distributed along Madagascar’s western seaboard, with three areas of particularly high population density. More
