White-tailed eagle Merikotkas Haliaeëtus albicilla
We see the development of the eaglet in growth, plumage and behaviour.
The hot weather, in daytime more than 25 degrees, wearies everybody including large birds. The adults sit as sunshades in front of the chick – the little organism is not protected against a heatstroke.
In the second half of the week rain is promised, possibly together with thunder. The eagle nest needs ”watering” too.
In our forests there is already a great danger of fire!
