December 18th, 2010 · No Comments

A pair of Steller’s sea eagles just moved from the Los Angeles Zoo to Woodland Park Zoo. The sea eagles will undergo a standard 30-day quarantine before being introduced to their exhibit in the Northern Trail.

These striking raptors are notably one of the heaviest eagles in the world, ranging from 11 to 20 pounds with a wing span of up to 7.5 feet. Their arrival marks the first time this species has been at the zoo.
