The White-bellied Sea-Eagle has white on the head, rump and underparts and dark grey on the back and wings. In flight the black flight feathers on the wings are easily seen when the bird is viewed from below. The large, hooked bill is grey with a darker tip, and the eye is dark brown. The legs and feet are cream-white, with long black talons.
The White-bellied Sea-Eagle is the second largest raptor found in Australia, second only to the Wedge-tailed Eagle.
Its call is a distinctive loud “goose-like” honking call, which is heard particularly during the breeding season.
