Lately Black-and-chestnut Eagles have been much on our minds, with a newly-found nest in our Rio Zunac Reserve. Now Fausto Recalde has managed to get some magnificent photos of an adult Black-and-chestnut Eagle in one of our other reserves, Cerro Candelaria. This adult is caring for a recently-fledged bird (see my video of this young bird here).

  1. I watched the fledgling video this morning while sitting in the backyard surrounded by a rather loud chorus of cardinals, titmouse, doves, a finch or two, to name some. They all fell silent when the eagle called.

    • Hi Lisa, thanks for that observation! Interesting that a strange call they had never heard before would be correctly recognized as a threatening raptor.
