Bald sea eagle in Andover

A symbol for the United States – the bald eagle – and not native to the United Kingdom. He or she has just returned to his handler at Andover Hawk Conservancy after an excursion in the wild. I am very impressed with the birds at the conservancy. They were allowed to take excursions and returned to their handlers during the raptor show. Several vultures and several buzzards were also shown flying in a group.

This eagle has a twin in Europe – the sea eagle – without a white head.

    • Thank you! I think Wikipedia says so. It seems that the European and the american sea Eagles are almost simular except for color. And the swedish name is very close to ern, it is havsörn, that swedish for sea eagle, where örn means eagle.
