Avian Vogue - January Edition

We catch up with one of the smartest dressed birds on the globe

Decked out in his signature dark brown upper body, lighter underbelly, white tail and stylishly grey head, Chandler Wing - the scion of the Grey-headed Fish Eagle royal family - sat down for a few moments with us to share his holiday experience.

Q: I have to compliment you on your perfect look. Who are you wearing?

A: Why thank you. Actually, it’s an original. I grew this myself!

Q: Many others have tried to copy it. Do you find that vexing?

A: You’re referring to the Lesser and the Palla’s Fish Eagles? All I can say is, you can dress like me, walk, talk and act like me. You can be the next best thing, but you’ll never be me. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!.

Fun Facts

Q: What is it about Northern Sri Lanka that makes it your favourite region?

A: It’s the fish. Somehow, this place has it all for me. Trees, fish-filled lakes and irrigation tanks, and perfect weather.

Q: Even though you are a piscivore, weren’t you spotted recently dining on a small reptile?

A: And that’s why Grey-headed Fish Eagles aren’t on the endangered list. Reptiles, birds and even small mammals, we eat them all. Adapt, survive and be fabulous!

Story of the Photo

The Mahoora Tented Safari Camp in Wilpattu has many lakes and irrigation tanks in close proximity and Dilum didn’t have to wander too far to capture a shot of this smartly dressed bird, scoping out its next meal.

Much more than just a great place to stay

"Thanks to our guide Avinka we had five great safaris staying four nights just after reopening this February. The staff made us feel so very welcome during the entire stay.

The safaries are just wonderful, and having a great guide in your vehicle makes a big difference. Avinka can spot animals you would never see and we were even lucky enough to sight leopards on the trees, close to our vehicle, and also running through the field. The wildlife is so exciting that you will have a great experience even if you don‘t see any leopards. We also had a great driver, which is essential if you drive through difficult territory. You are being taken care of the entire time, so even for those who do safaris for the first time, you will always feel safe.

The camp itself is very comfortable, you get everything you can think of, and on top of the great food being served with so much attention and friendliness. You also get wonderful vegetarian and vegan options. They put on bonfires at night, which makes it unforgettable.
When booking and making plans, you get great support from the headquarters, even if it gets difficult since you have to change your plans.
The best thing what can happen to you at the end of a vacation is when you are a bit sad to leave the place, having experienced something to remember forever, and the team does everything for this to happen. Thank you so much"
