The white-tailed sea eagle breeds in North Europe and in Asia. In Finland the white-tailed sea eagle can be found in archipelagos, in the regions of Satakunta as well as in the Kvarken Archipelago and on the shores of large lakes also in Lapland. According to its name, it prefers coastal seaside areas as its habitat. It feeds mainly on fish, but eats also water birds and small mammals and carrion.
Adult white-tailed sea eagles are non-migratory, wintering in their nesting areas, or by closest open waters. Young white-tailed sea eagles, however, are migratory. The white-tailed sea eagle nests in sturdy-branched pine trees, or even on rocks or cliffs. It uses the same nest for years, even for decades, the nest growing ever bigger with new twigs and branches it brings home to.
You don’t have to get back on your home-trip hungry, tired or without gifts to bring home to; at the Ranua Wildlife Park complex you have a diversity of services and plenty to do during your stay.
