Dutchman in Belgian Geel has eagle family on balcony
Jos Baart has had an eagle-owl family on his balcony in Geel, Belgium, since April. The eagle owl and her three chicks have entrenched themselves in a flower box in front of the window and regularly appear in front of the window.
Baart tells in the NPO Radio 1 program Early Birds that it is a joy to see the animals every day. "Sometimes the three of them sit in front of the glass and see the television. Then they are all watching television."
The program went to Geel and made a report of it, which can be seen on YouTube. Baart expects the animals to watch television with him for another two months before fleeing.
