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.
