The White-tailed Eagle is one of the most iconic raptors in Europe. With its impressive size and snow-white plumage, it is unmistakable in the sky. Eagles are opportunistic predators that feed on a variety of prey, from fish and small mammals to birds and other raptors.

White-tailed Eagles can be found in a variety of habitats, from coastal areas to open woodlands and even mountainous regions. They usually prefer to live near water, where they can find food and easy access to nesting sites.

White-tailed Eagles build large nests out of sticks, which they often reuse year after year. Nests can measure up to two meters in diameter and weigh several hundred kilograms! The female eagle typically lays two eggs, which she incubates for around 35 days. Both parents take turns feeding the chicks after they hatch, and the young eagles can be ready to fledge after around 70 days.

White-tailed Eagles are protected under the European Union’s Birds Directive, and it is illegal to kill, injure or disturb them. Thanks to conservation efforts, their population is slowly recovering and they are now found in many parts of Europe.
