The White-tailed Eagle is a very large bird. It measures 66–94 cm (26–37 in) in length with a 1.78–2.45 m (5.8–8.0 ft) wingspan. The wingspan, with a midpoint of 2.18 m (7.2 ft), is on average the largest of any eagle.

The Steller's Sea Eagle, larger in both weight and total length, is the closest rival for median wingspan amongst living eagles.

The Bald Eagle is roughly the same size as the White-tailed Eagle, although has a shorter average wingspan and usually longer total length, due to a longer tail.
