Two sea eaglets born in the Netherlands


This video is from Sweden, about white-tailed eagles (and a raven) in winter.

Two sea eagles born in Biesbosch nature reserve

Published on Monday, April 22, 2013

Bird watchers have discovered two white downy eaglets in the white-tailed eagle nest in the Biesbosch.

Ranger Thomas van der Es: “We knew that there was a young bird when we peered through a telescope at the nest. Last week we saw the distinctive feeding behavior of the female. She bended over with tiny pieces of meat in her huge bill. We did not see the two chicks then yet.”

In 2012, the presence of an eaglet was confirmed in mid-May. So, this year the couple is almost a month earlier. The female was already brooding in February. They braved snow and a nasty east wind. The two youngsters will stay at the nest for about five, six more weeks before they will fledge.
