Beautifully detailed engraving of the White-tailed Eagle, Sea Eagle or Erne - Haliaeetus albicilla.

The White-tailed Eagle, Sea Eagle, Erne or White-tailed Sea-eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla) is a large bird of prey in the family Accipitridae. This large eagle breeds in northern Europe and northern Asia. They pair for life, the nest is a huge edifice of sticks in a tree or on a coastal cliff, mated pairs produce one to three eggs per year. These birds are mostly resident, only the northernmost birds migrating south in winter. The white-tailed eagle's diet is varied, opportunistic and seasonal. Prey specimens can often include fish, birds and mammals. The white-tailed eagle was one of the many species described by Linnaeus in his Systema naturae in 1758.

The size of the print: 9,8" x 6,7" (25 x 17 cm) including its border.
Printed in 1878, Bibliographisches Institut Leipzig Germany, as an illustration for the second edition of "Brehm's Tierleben".

The print is in good condition, the paper shows its age with creamy patina, perfect for framing.

Concerning the age of the paper - cca. 135 years - some spots can be occured on the margin and the reverse side, but these do not effect the quality of the print itself as it can be seen on the scan.

Please note, that by antique prints due to their age some imperfections are to be expected.
