The White-bellied Sea-Eagle is the second largest raptor (bird of prey) found in Australia, after the Wedge Tailed Eagle. The wingspan is about 1.8 m - 2 m. Despite its name, the sea-eagle is not confined to coastal areas and is regularly recorded at wetlands far from the sea, along larger inland rivers and at freshwater swamps and lakes. The White-bellied Sea-Eagle feeds mainly off aquatic animals, such as fish, turtles and sea snakes, but it takes birds and mammals as well. It is a skilled hunter, and will attack prey up to the size of a swan. Like most bird species, Sea-Eagles will mate for life, one of the pair only taking on a new mate if the other half of the pair dies. White-bellied Sea-Eagles build a large stick nest, which is used for many seasons in succession. The nest can be located in a tree up to 30m above the ground, but may also be placed on the ground or on rocks, where there are no suitable trees. At the start of the breeding season, the nest is lined with fresh green leaves and twigs. The female carries out most of the incubation of the white eggs, but the male performs this duty from time to time. Lifespan of a White Bellied Sea Eagle is about 30 years.
