Three Eagle Chicks Hatched

JICA Expert Team (JET) observed three chicks of White-tailed Eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla) had already hatched in Garamgde on 11th Mar 2016.

The White-tailed Eagle is a very large bird, which has 74–۹۲cm length and 193–۲۴۴cm wingspan. The parents of the eagle made big nest by sticks and branches on the top of the tall tree in Ghalamgudeh. Recently the eagle breeds by using this nest every year. The chicks fledge at eleven to twelve weeks.

White-tailed Eagle is one of umbrella species of wetland ecosystem because the eagle preys mainly on many fish in the wetland.
