PHUKET: A red-backed sea eagle, also called a Brahminy kite, found near houses in Bang Tao with a broken wing has been taken into care by local wildlife officials.


Pongchart Chouehorm, Chief of the Nature and Wildlife Education Centre at Khao Phra Thaew, explained that the eagle had been seen around residents’ homes in the area for about three days before he received a call on Wednesday evening to come and take the bird into care.


The eagle was handed over to a veterinarian, who confirmed by x-ray that the bird’s right wing was broken.
