White-tailed eagle chick ringed

The white-tailed eagle hatched in the Oostvaardersplassen nature reserve in April has been ringed to allow ornithologists to monitor its progress should the bird leave to find its own territory.

The chick hatched to the same parents last year – the first white-tailed eagle born in Holland in living memory – still visits the area on occasion, ANP reported.
