The Eastern Imperial Eagles In Kaziranga

Many of the Indian national parks have proved to be an ideal place for the survival of endangered wild animals and birds. Some of these rare species can be found in Kaziranga National Park located in the Nagaon and Golaghat districts of the Indian state of Assam. Every year, several migratory birds arrive in Kaziranga from western countries. One of these bird species is the Eastern Imperial Eagle, which migrates to certain parts of Africa and Asia during winters. Earlier, the Eastern Imperial Eagle and Spanish Imperial Eagle were considered to be the same species. It’s only recently that a distinction has been made between the two..

An Eastern Imperial Eagle is a large bird and closely resembles its Spanish counterpart. They prefer to live in open areas that have small woods, unlike many other eagles generally found on mountains and in large forests. Hence the nests are built on trees having an open space around it and the females lay two or three eggs during the months of March or April. It takes about 43 days for the chicks to hatch.  . While constructing their nests, these eagles use tree branches, grass and feathers. Eastern Imperial Eagles are one of the most sought-after attractions in Kaziranga National Park for bird watchers. Many of them visit Kaziranga especially for these eagles or several other rare birds..
