For the very first time, The Great Ornithologist Felonious Jive is running late on his duties over at 10,000 Birds, so you are stuck with this lousy Steller's Sea-Eagle until he gets everything in order.

Steller's Sea-Eagle is one of the birds I want to see the most, but their nature of staying in Russia and Japan makes that difficult. I was happy just to see one of the San Diego Zoo's birds today, who was flying around and hanging out in it's wading pool (as it is in this picture), and apparently trying to innocently look like it's never thought of harming another creature in its life.


  1. That eagle certainly has one of those empowered, self-righteous looks to it, like he is fighting for a just and noble cause.

    They're such martyrs, the Steller's Eagles. It makes you want to trust and pet and cuddle them...and then they murder you and play in your blood.

  2. I would love to see one of these beauties in the wild too but I am not too keen on going to Russia or Japan to find one to photograph.
