Baby Black Eagle

Baby Black Eagle

Referring to my post of about a week ago – 24 Aug – about our picnic at the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens, there was an article in our local newspaper last weekend with a photograph of the eaglet in the nest

Photographing the nest is possible by a permanent camera attached to the cliff-face

I meant to keep the article, but alas I didn’t – briefly… the female usually produces two eggs which hatch around mid-May.  Survival of the fittest then ensues and one is left.   Baby Black Eagle should take to the air mid to end September .. find a mate and start the cycle elsewhere.  They mate for life and will remain in their area and use their same nest over and over again.
