For Birds of prey - which don't often have cute faces - the Steller's Sea Eagles is an exception. Well, in my opinion. But because they're a bit heavier, their faces aren't ordinarly as slim as those of many other Raptors. This is a sturdy individual; close to maturity, but not there just yet - it doesn't yet have the white patch above the middle of the beak :) But it's a handsome one for sure :heart:

Species: Steller’s Sea Eagle (Stellers zeearend)

Latin name: Haliaeetus Pelagicus

Originates from coastal northeastern Asia.

Current status: Vulnerable

Did you know:

…On average, the Steller’s Sea Eagle is the heaviest Eagle in the world, though in some standard measurements, it may mete out below the Harpy Eagle and Philippine Eagle.

…They’re easily recognized by their dark-brown to black plumage with strongly contrasting white on the lesser and median upper-wing coverts, under-wing coverts, thighs, under-tail coverts and tail. The eyes, bill and feet are yellow. Juveniles, however, remain a uniformly dark coloring, with white showing up here and there. Their irises are brown, legs are whitish and blackish-brown beak till they reach their definite plumage and looks in the fifth year of life.
