“Rainy Day”

The eaglet at the Norfolk Botanical garden has started to gain strength, and is now able to raise its head. despite the rain in Norfolk today the adults are keeping the chick warm and dry.

The chick hasn't had its first meal yet. This isn't unusual, the chick is still using the yolk it absorbed before hatching. The female has shared a few drops of water from her bill with the eaglet and we'll watch to see if the male returns with food.
