The Sea Eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla), The German heraldic animal, belongs as a bird of prey to the accipitrids. It is located in the boreal rich of water regions in Eurasia - from Greenland to Japan.

Eagles (Aquila) have been a fascination for men since ancient times. They are noble and majestic and were often considered a sign of the gods. They represent strength, power, force, superority, and freedom and are often called "Lord of the Air".
Sea eagles living in Germany have been endangered. Decreasing areas for their hunting, use of pesticides, and animals shot with lead containing ammunition caused a decreasing popularity. Only straight projects, e.g. by the WWF, to protect these great animals will (hopefully) help to settle down our heraldic animal again in Germany, and other countries of course. Currently we do have 580 couples in Germany, about 12,000 worldwide.

Eagles are monogam. They build large nests from branches padding it out with grass and moss. They lay one to three eggs and after about 38 days the chickens hatch out. After another ca. 75 days they leave their nest and stay on a branch where they get fed by the parents. A week later they try their first flights.

Our eagle chick "Toni" hasn't left its nest yet and gets fed by its parents. But it is ready for a new home which it finds soon, hopefully.

Wer Vögel liebt braucht dieses Adlerküken. Es ist super weich und hat schön Granulat im Körper und daher hält man es so gerne in der Hand und kuschelt gerne mit ihm. Es sieht echt schön aus und hat einen lieben Blick.
Super Qualität wie immer!!!
