I have not the fortune of seeing these in the nature, but on the other hand I could look at them quite close.

Can anyone ID this? I unfortunately forgot it. Looks quite angry...

I don't know how this one is called in English. The direct translation would be something like "big sea eagle" whereas the first pic shows a "plain" "sea eagle".

I think the third one is a Steller's sea eagle (Haliaeetus pelagicus).
Several zoos have young pairs as part of a breeding programme. They are spectacular now in plain dark brown plumage, but when they are fully adult they will have fantastic black and white plumage.
