An African Eagle claims its prey from the Okovango River. With a wingspan of 2 – 2.4 m the African Eagle is a large bird.
This species is still quite common near freshwater lakes, reservoirs, and rivers, although they can sometimes be found near the coast at the mouths of rivers or lagoons.
As their name implies, African Eagles are indigenous to sub-Saharan Africa, ranging over most of continental Africa south of the Sahara Desert.
