The eagle has landed

Posted by Ric Brewer

For several years back, we've had wild eagles take up residence on zoo grounds in trees in the elk yard in Northern Trail. This year appears to be no exception as intrepid volunteer photographer Dennis Dow snapped this great shot of one of these magnificent birds gathering twigs for a nest. Last year's nest failed, but we're hoping whatever pair appears has better luck this time around.

  1. Thanks to a sharp-eyed visitor, I saw one of these guys checking out the zoos two eagles on the northern trail up close yesterday. The wild eagle landed in a tree very close to the enclosure and about level with the nest. Both the zoo eagles were watching it closely.
