By my calculations there should be some new Eagle babies showing themselves to the world right now…
The breeding season for the Wedge Tailed Eagle is from June to August in the south and from April to September in the north… which means that chicks will be hatching sometime, somewhere during September as the weather starts to get warmer.
The nest (or as I like to call it “home”) is a large platform of sticks, built high up in the fork of a tree. It takes about 45 days for the eggs to hatch and for the first 4 weeks the female stays with the new babies on the nest. Meaning they are most likely ready to head out and about at the end of September…
So, this is the most perfect time to show my new family and friends the fun of Spring Holidays!
If you’re looking for something fun to do on the Mornington Peninsula these school holidays why not come soaring on the Arthurs Seat Eagle?!
Every day during the holidays we’ll have spot prize giveaways of our own version of a Springtime Showbag… you may even find a soft toy version of me inside one of them.
