A Rare and Wild Guest at Nashville Zoo at Grassmere

I took these pictures yesterday around 11:45 a.m. at the Nashville Zoo, Tennessee, USA.

This Bold Eagle stayed for a short time near the Giraffe exhibit and then flew on in a westerly direction.

This was the first official sighting of a Bald Eagle at Nashville Zoo at Grassmere.

A beautiful and rare sighting in the midst of a city on a gloomy day.

  1. Hi Christian, can you please tell me what the difference is between the bald eagle and the fish eagle?

    1. The term fish eagle can refer to many different birds (African Fish Eagle, Sanford’s Fish Eagle, Madagascar Fish Eagle, Lesser Fish Eagle, Grey-headed Fish Eagle, or the Pallas’s Fish Eagle). I assume you mean the African Fish Eagle.

      The African Fish Eagle occurs in Africa and the Bald Eagle in North America.

      A very noticable differences is that where the Bald Eagle only has a white head and tail the African Fish Eagle has more white in its plumage (under-side).

      There is quite a bit of information on the internet on both.
