Our rescued eagle wants to go back to its original nest, and keeps leaving the new nest we made for it. We can’t safely climb to the new nest, and neither can the young eagle. We hope that by this weekend it will have enough flight skills to make it to the original nest. Meanwhile Andy and Abel are making the two-hour hike to the nest every day, rescuing the bird from near the ground (where it is vulnerable to predators) and putting it back up in the artificial nest….

Nuestra águila rescatada quiere regresar a su nido original, y continúa abandonando el nuevo nido que le hicimos. No podemos escalar con seguridad al nuevo nido, y tampoco la joven águila. Esperamos que para este fin de semana tenga suficientes habilidades de vuelo para llegar a su nido original. Hasta entonces, Andy y Abel están caminando 2 horas hacia el nido cada día, rescatando al ave de cerca del suelo (donde es vulnerable a depredadores) y llevándola de regreso al nido artificial.

  1. What a beautiful insight into the life of a young eagle – and what powerful claws already! Maybe i missed the beginning of this story – where are the parents? What species?
    Gratitude to the young couple for their dedication.

  2. Hi Lou How are you? I’m back in Vilca after several months in Colombia. Did a lot of murals of local wildlife. Please take a look at the link below and give me your opinion with your artist’s eye.
