A while ago I reported that our reserve guards had discovered an active nest of the Black-and-chestnut Eagle (Spizaetus isidori) in our Rio Zunac Reserve. The baby has hatched since then and is growing much faster than we expected. It has survived the worst rainy season in recent memory, with torrential rains that even washed out the path to the reserve. Now the weather is better and the path is fixed, and we’ll soon be hosting some eagle specialists who will come to observe the eagles. Meanwhile here are some more photos of the baby and parents…..
See this post for more photos of the adult at the nest.
