 New Feathered Residents at Olympic Park

Thursday, August 04, 2016

Sydney Olympic Park Authority is delighted to announce the arrival of two new feathered residents at Olympic Park.  Two eggs laid in late-June by the White-bellied Sea-Eagles at Sydney Olympic Park have successfully hatched!

 

The first hatched at 8.30pm last Friday (29 July) and the second at 7am last Sunday, 31 July. Both the two cute fluffy little chicks (pics attached) and their parents are doing well.

 

Since White-bellied Sea-Eagles are wild birds, they cannot be disturbed by close-human contact and therefore we're unsure at this stage if the eaglets are male or female. They've been named 'S17' and 'S18' and will be closely watched for the next 10 weeks as the eaglets grow and hopefully fledge!

 

The Sea-Eagles can be seen from a distance at Sydney Olympic Park's BirdLife Discovery Centre at Newington Armory, which is open every weekend with FREE entry between 10am-4pm.

 

Additionally, EagleCAM (also FREE) provides incredible live-feed vision of the White-bellied Sea-Eagles AND the new eaglets in the nest, which can be watched online 24/7. EagleCAM has had more than 3.8 million views from all over the world since its inception in 2009, and it is the subject of umpteen online forums internationally.
