They have a person at the CRC who is in charge of enrichment for the residents. This isn't a bald eagle-it's a gorgeous one winged Golden Eagle named Zlaty. I thought you might enjoy seeing it playing with a Christmas tree. love

Note on facebook from the enrichment director

Hello everyone and welcome to the first installment of the CRC Enrichment Blog! My name is Anne Daily and I lead the enrichment program here at Carolina Raptor Center. I will do my best to give you exciting news about the enrichment that goes on here each week.

Right now the only species that are in the enrichment program are the vultures, eagles, owls, and corvids. Eventually I hope to include all the birds in our collection.

Enrichment is very important in the health of our birds because it keeps them mentally stimulated and active. This is especially important for the more intelligent species like the vultures and corvids. It also helps to simulate what a bird may find in the wild and encourage natural behavior.

This past week some of the birds, like Zlaty in this video, were given used Christmas trees in their enclosures. The goal here was to change their enviroment with the introduction of the tree. Zlaty is a male Golden Eagle that was acquired in 1985 from the Liberty Wildlife Rehabilitation Foundation in Arizona. This is the time of year when eagles are nesting and Zlaty often enjoys having sticks to carry around and arrange. This makes the tree enrichment especially appropriate for him. As you can see in the video, he actively interracted with it, making this enrichment very successful. Even though he got a bit over zealous at the end, just know that no birds were harmed in the making of this video.

Great pictures! Thanks, eaglet!

Both are checking out the nest bowl.

Now one is back on the edge, and other is wandering around, perhaps "hunting" for an afternoon snack.

It looks as if he found something; so far the other one is content to sit on the edge of the nest and watch.
