Sea eagle

A sea eagle (also called erne or ern, mostly in reference to the white-tailed eagle) is any of the birds of prey in the genus Haliaeetus in the bird of prey family Accipitridae.

Sea eagles vary in size, from the Sanford's fish eagle averaging 2–2.7 kg to the huge Steller's sea eagle weighing up to 9 kg. At up to 6.9 kg, the white-tailed eagle is the largest eagle in Europe. Bald eagles can weigh up to 6.3 kg, making them the largest eagle native to North America. The white-bellied sea eagle can weigh up to 3.4 kg.   Their diets consist mainly of fish and small mammals.
