White-tailed eagle

The white-tailed eagle used to be a much rarer sight on the coasts of Western Europe compared to today. They have had a great increase in population size over the last 50 years, and today one can find several white-tailed eagles on Runde. If you are lucky you might even see several at once! They mostly prey on fish, but they can also eat carrion, and even catch other birds such as puffins! The appearance of the white-tailed eagle varies with age. If you watch carefully you can see the difference between the young and adult birds. The adults have a distinct white tail, and the head is more white-spotted than in young individuals.
