16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

Steller’s sea eagle’s wingspan is one of the largest of any living eagle. The wingspan is from 1.95 to 2.5 m (6 ft 5 in to 8 ft 2 in) and the wing chord measurement is 56 to 68 cm (22 to 27 in). With forward-facing eyes, Steller’s sea eagle has a wide field of binocular vision. But they can use both monocular and binocular vision, meaning they can use they eyes independently or together depending on what they are looking at.
