Good opportunity to compare sizes of mother Tiiu and eaglet

 

Greater spotted eagle        Suur-konnakotkas         Aquila clanga  or Clanga clanga

 

Father Tõnn is ardently occupied with getting food for the eaglet. The occasions of fetched food during the day cannot be counted. The young bird is waiting and grabs  the prey from the parents, to gulp it down.  What else – who eats grows, to the joy of the parents.

In a couple of weeks the first flight out of the nest should take place. Until then wing exercises must be performed in the nest.
