Eaglet Update

Spring has begun and as the weather gets warmer, our eaglet gets bigger!

With mum and dad ensuring their eaglet is growing stronger by the day (with dad putting in the hard work to provide prey); the young one is losing its white fluffy down and growing real feathers just like its parents. This means that it will be able to thermo-regulate and will require less brooding by the adults.

The little one is growing more independent by the day, with longer and stronger legs meaning it can now stand and move about the nest as well as grab at food and start to feed itself.

Don’t miss your chance to watch the eaglet keep growing and eventually spread its wings; get onto our EagleCAM now and see for yourself!

Free bird walks are hosted on the last Sunday of every month at the BirdLife Discovery Centre; run by BirdLife Australia. It is open to the public every weekend at Newington Armory, so bring the family for a fun day out!
