Sea Eagle

The Life of Animals | Sea Eagle | The Sea Eagle (also known as white-tailed eagle and the Erne, especially for white-tailed eagle) is a bird of prey of the genus Haliaeetus in the bird of prey family Accipitridae. Eagles vary in size from a fish eagle Sanford average of 2 to 2.7 kg for the massive Steller's sea eagle weighing up to 9 kg. To 6.9 kg, white-tailed eagle is the largest in Europe. Eagles can weigh up to 6.3 kg, making it the largest eagle native to North America.  Three pairs of obvious species: white-tailed eagles, bald eagles and white-bellied sea Sanford and Africa and Madagascar fish eagle Each consists of a white and brown and kind of head and tail are white in all adult eagle, except for Sanford, white-bellied, and Pallas.

The genus is present in the Middle Miocene (12-16 Ma) with confidence Its closest relatives are the eagles fishing in Ichthyophaga kind, very similar to a tropical Haliaeetus species. The origin of the eagles and eagles fishing, probably in the general area in the Bay of Bengal. During the Eocene / Oligocene, as the Indian subcontinent collided with Eurasia, slowly, this vast expanse of relatively shallow ocean, the initial divergence of March eagle seems to have resulted in four tropical (and subtropical Southern Hemisphere) species across the Indian Ocean today.

In 2005, studies have shown that the molecular paraphyletic genus and summarizes Ichthyophaga, different species in a group of temperate and tropical.
