Remarks :Field Observation - The White-bellied Sea Eagle (Haliaeetus leucogaster) was circling around and had come quite close for me to observe. A black kite (Milvus migrans) which was not far away when this eagle was above me, suddenly started chasing the eagle. The White-bellied Sea Eagle turned around to chase the Black Kite away. After a little chase, the White-bellied Sea Eagle again started circling away from there. The Black Kite too flew away. Not much of action / fight was seen. - TB
