White-Tailed Eagle Photography
The white-tailed eagle is largest bird of prey in Estonia, with a wing span of 200-245 cm and a body mass of up to 6 kg.
The white-tailed eagle is apparently native to Estonia. The first written records of white-tailed eagles encountered in the Baltic States date back to the final quarter of the 18th century. In 1815, the white-tailed eagle has been mentioned as a bird that is not particularly rare in Estonia, especially near Lake Peipsi. Based on the observations of ornithologists from the 19th century, the number of white-tailed eagle pairs can be estimated at no less than 30. A decrease in the numbers of white-tailed eagles evidently began during the last quarter of the 19th century and culminated during the 1960s, when no successful nestings were reported for several years. The situation did not improve until the second half of the 1970s, and currently, the number of white-tailed eagle pairs nesting in Estonia is nearing 150. (kotkas.ee)
Best time for white-tailed eagle photography is in winter. Sometimes also in autumn.
We have photography hide for that.
