About Europa 2019 - Icelandic Birds - White-Tailed Eagle

The white-tailed eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla) is a bird of prey breeding in northern Europe and Asia. The eagle became almost extinct in Europe, but preservation activities have made it possible to rebuild some nest sites. Males are smaller than female birds. The eagle reaches sexual maturity four to five years old. The eagle population in Iceland is slowly recovering and counted 76 adult couples in 2017, having more than tripled over 50 years. Most eagles nest in West Iceland. They catch birds and fish, even taking lambs and seals when the opportunity arises. The eagle was accorded full status
as protected species in 1913.
