White-tailed eagle chick in the Netherlands is a female


This video is of an adult white-tailed eagle irritated by crows.

Translated from Staatsbosbeheer in the Netherlands:

DNA research has shown that the white-tailed eagle chick, born on 15 April in the Oostvaardersplassen nature reserve [in Flevoland, the Netherlands] is a female.

The DNA research was on a feather, taken on 24 May while banding the young bird.
