|WHITE-TAILED EAGLE (DANUBE DELTA)|
BECAUSE THIS BIRD WAS FLYING VERY FAR FROM OUR BOAT
I MADE A COLLAGE WITH 2 IMAGES WITH THE BIRD IN FLIGHT....
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).
he 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.
During the period 1800-1970, white-tailed eagles in most of Europe underwent dramatic declines and became extinct in many regions of western, central and southern Europe.
Since the 1980s, the European white-tailed eagle population has recovered steadily and is spreading back westward. It has today recolonised several traditional breeding areas in Europe.

You have managed to capture a quality image of the Raptor despite the distance from your boat. The Impressive wingspan captured in its full glory.
