Specie: White-Tailed Eagle
Location: Puszcza Białowieska, Poland

The white-tailed eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla), also known as the ern, erne, gray eagle, Eurasian sea eagle and white-tailed sea-eagle, is a large bird of prey in the family Accipitridae which includes other raptors such as hawks, kites, and harriers. They are found in Eurasia, near large bodies of open water with an abundant food supply and old-growth trees for nesting. They are considered a close cousin of the bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus).

The white-tailed eagle is a very large bird. It measures 66–94 cm (26–37 in) in length with a 1.78–2.45 m (5.8–8.0 ft) wingspan. The wingspan, with a midpoint of 2.18 m (7.2 ft), is on average the largest of any eagle. The bald eagle is roughly the same size as the white-tailed eagle, although has a shorter average wingspan and usually longer total length, due to a longer tail.

This species has broad “barn door” wings, a large head and a large thick beak. The adult is mainly grayish-brown except for the slightly paler head and neck, blackish flight feathers, and distinctive white tail. All bare parts are yellow in color, including both the bill and the legs. In juvenile birds, tail and bill are darker, the tail becoming white with a dark terminal band in sub-adults.

Some individuals have been found to live over 25 years, 21 years being the average.

Great catch!

Did you hear about the EU court ruling to stop the Bialowieska logging? I hope the polish government acts quickly.

Thank you!

Yes, logging had stopped some time ago. Right now many people want to throw former minister of environment into jail, based on the UE court ruling. Will see how it plays out.

Your welcome :) Haha cool! How many frames per second can your camera go? Mine can only hit 5 without the vertical grip =p I want to try shooting like that though! I have a longer, half decent auto focus lens to do it with now too, instead of just my usual 40 year old manual lens :XD:

Unfortunately my camera isn't as fast as I would like to.. It takes up to 8 shots/second but for some birds that's not enough. Also buffer could a little bit bigger, with such fighting shots action usually lasts couple of seconds and those 22 pictures that buffer can take is usually not enough. But you put up with whatever you can afford right? :)

Loffy0 Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2018  Hobbyist Photographer
Ah ok. That is too bad, but still 8 frame per second is pretty good, and 22 frame buffer is not bad, even if it is not enough. Maybe if you got a faster SD card it could empty the buffer faster?
Exactly! I think what we both need is a Nikon D500 :XD: It shoots 10fps and with a fast enough XQD card can empty the buffer as fast as your can shoot lol.

Unfortunately I have CF cards and they are more expensive than SD. :/ Still not the price of XQD. :D I would prefer C1D over Nikon D500, but those are details lol.

Ah ok, yeah. My dad's camera takes them and I had a hell of a time finding a good deal on one for him for Christmas. Lol, true! Still, maybe a faster card would help you shoot for longer? I am looking for a faster card for my camera. My buffer can only hold 10 raw images (yuk!)
I looked it up, did you mean the "Canon EOS-1D C"?? I could not find a C1D :meow: Does it have a bottomless buffer too? Lol.
