More accurately, it's another sea eagle: Haliaeetus leucoryphus, Pallas' sea eagle. This means I'm halfway through the genus - so far I've painted H. vocifer, leucogaster, pelagicus, with albicilla, vociferoides, sanfordi, and leucocephalus to go.

It's amazing how the various bald eagle models differ in virtually every aspect other than color. Of course, that makes customizing that much easier, once you work out which species the model looks like! This one is rather gracile and has a much slenderer bill than the other molds, which matches up quite well with the Pallas.

It's the Collecta. I'm still mulling over what to do with the Mojo... The all-brown special run is beautiful, so I may just go with that color scheme and turn him into a juvenile baldy.

I should add that this is all thanks to my favorite reference book: Raptors of the world by James Ferguson-Lees. Very complete and beautifully illustrated! Very Happy
