Sea Eagles in Norway

Thought for the day….”Those who do not learn the lessons of history are bound to repeat them”

” Do not wait for the day of judgement, it takes place every day”.

Also known as the fish eagle, the sea eagle can grow up to 1 metre in length and have a wingspan of 2m.  The white tail feathers show that the birds are adult.  Some sea eagles have been measured at over 7.5kg in weight, with the largest populations being found in the Artic north, including around the Lofoten Islands (where these photos were taken).   Despite their name, the fish eagle also hunts small mammals but they are largely scavengers, and will often steal food from other birds.

The photos below were taken with the Fuji X-E1, hand held on a moving boat (!!) with a 50-230mm lens.
