In a recent post I was excited about our guards’ discovery of a nest of the endangered Black-and-chestnut Eagle (Spizaetus isidori) in our Rio Zunac Reserve. At that time they only had photos taken from a long distance away, but they were as excited as I was, and spent the last few days searching for better viewing angles. They’ve succeeded.
The above photo is the view from a spot close to the nest, but with bright sky behind it. On a clear day this might be useful for photography.
They also succeeded in finding a clear view from a point above the nest, so they can now see what is going on inside. The photos are still a bit rough, since they are some distance from the nest, and the camera lenses have been fogging up due to the high humidity and heavy rain. But we’ll get better at this as time goes on. I expect we’ll be able to make some amazing videos of the prey items they will bring in as the baby eagle grows.
We’re all waiting eagerly to see what they will feed the baby….
