Rather doubtful. The Bald Eagle is the only sea eagle native to NW
America and it is similar in size to the Golden Eagle. Occasionally a
Sea Eagle will stray into Alaskan waters from NE Asia. Steller's are
largest sea eagles, attaining weights of nearly 20 lbs. If you plug
into the carrying capacity equation, 4 lbs would be close to the max
Dingoes on the other hand...
I was thinking of Steller's (Haliaeetus pelagicus). But apparently
they do not make it into NA as often as I thought. I appreciate the
Incidentally, how certain is it that the carrying capacity algorithm is
(or should be) linear? Regardless, care should be taken in applying
it: some eagles having lower wing loadings than the equation assumes.
