Steller sea eagle

Steller’s sea eagle

This sea eagle is one of the largest bird of prey. Magestic in flight, armed with powerful talons and a mighty yellow beak, it may remind of the American bald eagle (or the African fish eagle), but it is a quite different species.

You may want to see it actually fishing at sea.
