So far Raju had only flapped his wings on the nest

 

Lesser spotted eagle      Clanga pomarina

 

The young eagle Raju will turn 2-months old on Sunday, 9th August. At that age juvenile birds make their first fledging attempts.

Raju was successful and from the video below we can see him returning to the nest. First acquaintance with the surroundings lasted a little more than half an hour and Raju couldn't get too far with that time.

"Once again I am one week older"

 

Lesser-spotted eagle        Clanga pomarina

 

At the moment the baby bird Raju is one month and three weeks old. He will turn 2 months old on 9th August and at that time we expect his flying capabilities to show.

 

The parents Karin and Indrek have taken good care of Raju, even though he eagerly snatches any food they ever bring.
