More info: Magadan is a port city located on the shores of the Sea of Okhotsk in northeastern Russia and the Steller's sea eagle is believed to breed only along this coastal area and that of the Bering Sea.

The Steller’s sea-eagle is easily recognised with its dark body; white forehead, shoulders, tail, and thighs; and bright-yellow bill. It is the largest of all sea-eagles, and the heaviest known eagle.

Steller's sea eagle builds several aeries, which are bulky constructions of twigs and sticks, at a height up to 150 cm (59 in) and diameter up to 250 cm (98 in). They usually place these nests high up on trees or on rocky outcrops. Alternate nests are usually built within 900 m (3,000 ft) of each other.

One to three eggs are laid, with two being the usual. Incubation takes around 39 to 45 days. Usually only one chick survives to adulthood.

One of the rarest raptors in the world, very little is known about Steller’s sea-eagles, due to the remote nature of their primary habitat.
