Black Eagle


Black eagles, at any age, are more discomforted by heat than by cold. On hot, exposed nests they open their beaks and pant, even if there is no direct sunlight. Tiny chicks and down-covered eaglets seek shade by moving into the adults shadow or any patch of shade available on the nest. The adults, like the nestlings, must obtain the liquid they need from their prey. Occasionally they have been observed bathing in the pond at the top of the waterfall.
