Yes, that's a baby eagle. That's what the pak cik told me anyway, a baby. Well, looks to me more like a pre-teen one. The pak cik rescued this bird when it was a baby. When it was found to be badly injured and was unable to fly. The pak cik took this majestic bird and nursed it to back to health. Bless his heart.
The pak cik also story that petang-petang mak burung tu akan terbang berlegar panggil anak dia. 'Apasal pak cik tak lepas kan anak dia?'. 'Dia masih tak kuat lagi tu. Dah ok nanti, pak cik akan lepaskan'.
In the meantime, pak cik tu bagi makan ayam. 'Dia paling suka kulit ayam', kata pak cik tu. Dari cara pak cik tu cerita, saya rasa dia sayang kat burung tu. Mesti sedih masa nak lepaskan nanti.
It is a wild one and pretty fierce too. I was just glad that it did not peck me or my camera/lens.. hehe...
