Young Dutch sea eagles can fly now

This is a video about the sea eagles in the Netherlands last year; the parents feeding their chick.

From AgriMedia in the Netherlands:

The two sea eaglets of Oostvaardersplassen nature reserve have flown for the first time last week. Staatsbosbeheer said so on Tuesday. These birds are the third and fourth eaglets which have been bred successfully in this nature reserve in Flevoland province.

The male and female juveniles by now are as big as adult sea eagles. This means their wingspan is over 2 meter. For another two months, the birds wil be dependent on the parents, before they will hunt for themselves.
