One Month!

About a month ago we first noticed Gidjee begin to move away from her nest again, following a long stint of incubation. Today Gill visited the (as yet unrecorded) nest site and observed something exciting: Gidjee and Mulga are proud parents! The eaglet picture above is about a month old, well on track to fledging successfully. This bird is destined for the third PTT, currently on its way from America to my house! When aged about 60-70 days, this eagle chick will be fitted with a solar-PTT, just like that worn by Gidjee and Wallu, to track its movements when it flies from the nest, and hopefully for many years afterwards. More updates coming soon!
