Which Eagles live in Norway?


Both White-tailed Eagles & Golden Eagles are found across mainland Norway, however, they have not reached the Svalbard archipelago, located further north. Some ornithologists are concerned that global warming & other manmade factors may cause the eagles to migrate to the region in the near future.

The Golden Eagles of Norway


In addition to the White-tailed eagles, Norway is home to the majestic Golden Eagle, one of the largest birds of prey found across . This magnificent species can be found all over the Norwegian landscape, commonly seen soaring high above with its wingspan measuring up to two & a half meters wide. The Golden Eagles of Norway can weigh up to four kilograms, making them a formidable presence in the sky.

Golden Eagles typically feed on small mammals such as rabbits, marmots, & hares, though they are also known to scavenge carrion or dead animals. In the summer months, it is not uncommon to spot a feasting on ptarmigans or other mountain birds.

Golden Eagles are known for their stunningly beautiful plumage & regal stature. Males have a light brown head with a white crown, a dark chocolate brown back & upper wings, & a white lower body, while females are darker with more mottled underwings & tail feathers. Each bird's feathers are marked with unique light speckles, resembling a golden hue.

In terms of habitat & nesting sites, the of Norway prefers to claim territories & build nests atop steep cliffs & rocky mountain peaks. This helps the eagle maintain a territorial advantage over predators, allowing them to protect & feed their young with minimal risk.

The largest of Norway's populations can be found in the Western part of the country, particularly near the Hardangervidda National Park.

Although their numbers have been declining since the 1960s due to habitat destruction & destruction of prey animals, conservation efforts in Norway & across have helped increase the Golden Eagle population in recent years. Through proper protection & management of their habitat, the Golden Eagles of Norway will continue to thrive in the wild for years to come.
