White-tailed Eagles in Norway

My May travels have brought me to Smøla, a small island off the coast of Norway at latitude 63°24′7″N. There are more than 10 pairs of white-tailed Eagles living within about a 5km radius of the harbor from where we departed on a slow trip through the well-defined territories of each pair of birds. Most nests have chicks at the moment and the hungry parents often returned to the boat several times to take fish thrown into the water. The images below are of Harry, a favorite bird of guides Audun and Espen Lie Dahl.
