The Bald Eagle (North America), the White-bellied Sea Eagle (Australia), the White-tailed Eagle (Greenland, Iceland, northern Russia and Siberia) and the African Fish Eagle are relatives, along with four other members of the Haliaeetus (in French, Pygargue) gender. They vary mainly in the extent of white color in their head and tail; they are generally found near water and feed on fish and/or warterfowl.
