Steller’s sea eagle

Let's learn

One of the rarest birds of prey in the world, not much is known about the Steller’s Sea Eagle. Living on the remote rocky seacoasts and rivers of Siberia, this enormous raptor can dive more than 100 feet to seize prey from the ground, water or mid-air with their enormous talons! Sea eagles mainly eat salmon and trout, but are also capable of hunting geese, hares and even young seals.

Sea eagles build their large nests high up in dead or open-topped trees, near rivers or on rocky cliffs. A breeding pair will typically return to the same nest and add to it each year.
