Angel Muela— 17 October 2001 — in Neotropical Raptor Conservation Program Share
Not all Harpy Eagles breed at the same time throughout the year, but our past experiences with these particular birds indicate that we could expect courtship behavior in the next few weeks. Each of the eagles’ chambers is equipped with a closed-circuit television system so that our biologists will be able to monitor the birds’ behavior without disturbing them. The camera system will also allow us to verify when eggs are laid and that the eagles are incubating them.
Two juveniles that hatched in Boise this year were also brought to the Neotropical Raptor Center. They will, most likely, be part of our educational program until they reach sexual maturity when they will become part of our breeding program.
The tropical weather is having a positive effect on the newly arrived birds, which are already showing a cleaner and healthier plumage.
