Animal Scene - - COVER STORY -

While bond­ing with an ea­gle may seem fun and, in Ni­co­las’ words, astig, she does warn that train­ing an ea­gle is ex­tremely chal­leng­ing. Ea­gles must be trained ev­ery day, “kasi if lumag­pas ka lang kun­wari for two days hindi mo siya na­train, some­times nagla-lapse and nag-iiba yung mood nila (be­cause if you don’t train them for two days, some­times their mood can change).”

She ex­plains that many ea­gle train­ers have dif­fer­ent meth­ods. Some man their ea­gles while they fly freely, while some even sleep next to their ea­gles at night.
