The Wright Strokes #6 - Sketches from Eagle Country
The latest sketches from our Eagle Officer, John following his most recent encounter with our young eagles. These sketches show Skan (C17), Emily (121) and Edward (C09) in moult. Click on the images for a more detailed view.
For Golden Eagles, moult begins in March or April each year, running through to September or October. The distinctive white patches which are prominent on young eagles will become darker with age.
