I see a fair number of birds around my current abode (a condo in a high rise) in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. Getting photos of them isn’t easy though. Here are 2 hawks or eagles? If you can identify them please add a comment (if you have a link to authenticate the identification, even better).

I even have some storks that commute past my windows every morning and evening.

    Hi John

    They are white-bellied sea eagles. They soar around my condo here in Penang too. If you Google them, you’ll find the authentication you’re looking for.

    Cheers
