Update on the eaglets

eagletUnfortunately, the older eaglet has been taken into care at the Taronga Wildlife Hospital.

A few days ago, this eaglet ended up on the ground and unable to get back into the nest after fluttering down. This eaglet has problems with the condition and growth of his feathers and is unable to fly.

The parent eagles would not have fed him on the ground and he would have been very vulnerable, which is why he was rescued.

Although it would be preferred for the eaglet to return to the nest, this will be impossible. With the appropriate approvals from NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, he has been taken into care, where he has put on weight.

Blood test results are still to come in, which will give some answers for possible cause and the future for this eaglet.

The other eaglet fortunately seems to be in great condition and is flying about, near the nest.
