White-tailed sea eagle Haliaeetus albicilla

White-tailed sea eagles are the fourth largest eagles in the world.

Sea eagles have a body length of 69-91cm and a wingspan of 200-245cm. The males weigh 4.1kg and females weigh 5.5kg.

Physical Description
Sea eagles are very large, broad-winged eagles with a wedge-shaped tail. Their plumage is mainly brown, but the adult has a pale head and a white tail. The head and the beak is larger than the golden eagles. The eyes, beak and talons are bright yellow.

Sea eagles are found across Europe and also inhabit parts of Asia.

Their preferred habitat is rocky coasts, but they may also inhabit areas such as remote lakes and marshes, further inland.

Sea eagles are scavengers and feed on carrion, although they will also hunt seabirds, fish that swim near the surface of the water, and medium-sized mammals.

They construct large nests of branches and twigs in trees or on cliffs. The female lays an average of two eggs, which she incubates for about six weeks. The young fledge the nest after 10 weeks.

White-tailed sea eagles emit various high pitched calls, as well as a low barking note.

What a beautiful perspective. I love your work with DOF on this photo and the color saturation is perfect. Sharpness on the Eagles face is just awesome. The background is stunning as well.
