The Chillian Eagle

This amazing bird was very different to the Owls, although much heavier than the Eagle Owl he landed much lighter. He had to be tied to the post by a line as the only thing on his mind was flying up high and attacking the wild Buzzard above. Rooks gathered high above, circling, ready to mob him if he tried. A fantastic day and one I will not forget.

The day was really blowing a Gail, But unlike the Owls the Eagle loved the wind and was a much stronger flier. A large gust of wind blow the Eagle off course slightly as he came in to land and with talons that size, you had to move fast to avoid a trip to the hospital.
