The Steller’s sea eagle is an enormous raptor from the coastline and rivers of northeastern Asia. An adult female can grow to 20 pounds with a body length of 41 inches and a wingspan of eight feet. These dimensions are much larger than the American bald eagle. Scientifically known as haliaeetus pelagicus, these powerful birds watch for food with their incredible vision from tall trees or while circling about 20 feet. Then they dive into the water to retrieve a trout or salmon in its sharp, curved talons. This eagle can be seen in the Northern Trail section of Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Washington.
