White tailed sea eagles - exceptional parenting


Postby Breelander » July 4th, 2024, 3:27 pm

Above and beyond the normal parenting duties....

Footage captured from a boat off the Isle of Mull shows a "miracle" white-tailed eagle chick in flight, after it was nursed back to health by two unusually caring parents.

In an unprecedented display of extended eagle parenting, the two white-tailed parents skipped this year's breeding season to continue to tend to their year-old offspring.

The youngster's wing was broken when the nest fell to the ground during unseasonably wild weather last year.
