I am two months old
Lesser spotted eagle Clanga pomarina
Adults Karin and Indrek have taken good care of young eagle Raju, who hatched on 9th June. Raju turned two months old and is now developing his skills with wing exercises.
The young eagle has mostly flown near the nest so far, but this morning father Indrek called him further.
Indrek's "back-bag" i.e his radio transmitter has had one of its straps snapped. The Eagle club guys tried to catch him with some bait, but he is not hungry in the summertime. We shall see in the coming days, if he will manage to rid himself from this loose transmitter by himself.
