Black Eagle (Witkruis arend)
Two breading pairs of the Black Eagle (Witkruis arend) are breading on EL YOLO OnE. We spotted two juveniles lately and managed to capture one on a close up photo.
Their wingspan is normally about 1860 mm up to 2220 mm. The female lays 1 to 3 eggs and both parents sits on the nest for 84 to 99 days. The juveniles will be dependent on the parents for about 6 months and then the parents chase them away.
The juvenile birds must move to a different location. They feed on Dassies, birds and reptiles. Scientific name is the Aquila verreauxii.
