There are 5 Wedge-tailed eagles in the large flight at present. These birds all have varying degrees of feather damage from marked to extremely severe.
All also had other problems, but have now had a thorough veterinary examination by Dr Charlie Carter including, x rays, blood sampling, bacterial and fungal cultures from their feather shafts, retina checks and faecal analysis. Specialist diagnostic assistance has been sought with the results obtained, and treatments are now finished leaving the birds to rest quietly in the large flight.
Their change in attitude and demeanor is really remarkable, and the way they interact, chat, allo preen, roost together and appear to play is heart warming. They do genuinely seem to enjoy each other’s company and have all really sparked up since being introduced to each other.
Their individual colourings are beautiful.
Once again special thanks and gratitude to the organisations who have sent them here, trusting us with their care and giving them the combined best chance we can for them to soar free again.”
