Eagle released into the wild welcomed by another one

THE LESSER Spotted Eagle (Aquila pomarina) that was found injured this past May in a family garden in the municipality of Hrušov, was released after being treated and given time to heal near the Jablonovské sedlo ridge, also known as Soroška, close to where it was originally found. By that time, another eagle had been spotted circling above the village and it seemed to be looking for something.

THE LESSER Spotted Eagle (Aquila pomarina) that was found injured this past May in a family garden in the municipality of Hrušov, was released after being treated and given time to heal near the Jablonovské sedlo ridge, also known as Soroška, close to where it was originally found. By that time, another eagle had been spotted circling above the village and it seemed to be looking for something.

“We carefully placed the eagle on the ground and waited to see how it would behave. Within 10 seconds, the eagle flapped its wings and made it into the air, flying away from us for about 150 metres,” Zuzana Guziová of the SOS/BirdLife Slovensko civic association informed the SITA newswire. She said that another eagle, possibly its partner, had been lingering close to the garden where the injured bird was found. She added that the second eagle “looked as if it was happy to find its lost partner after two weeks”. Miroslav Dravecký of the association added that both birds circled above Hrušov for about 30 minutes and then left.

“The injured eagle was sent to the Administration of the Slovenský kras National Park in Brzotín, and later moved to the Rehab Station on Zázrivá. Thanks to the help of experienced experts, the eagle regained its health in Zázrivá, and after three weeks it was ready to return to the wild,” Guziová informed. The eagle was marked with an ornithology ring as well as a blue plastic ring with an ID code that will enable people to track its whereabouts.
