    From their blog;

    The Academy of Falconry Puy du Fou student nearly 500 birds from 80 different species and approximately 80 births per year. The first egg of the 2013 season have hatched a few days ago, two white-tailed eagles, a rarity!

    Last year, the osprey has been replicated only once in the whole of Europe. Having two births of this species today Falconry Puy du Fou is a great success and satisfaction.

    With a collction of 500 birds, 80 chicks seems to me a little few ? Or are not all the birds in breeding-positions ?
    Even so, With-tailed eagles ( I guess you mean White-tailed sea eagles ? ) and Ospreys are of course a very nice ( and rare ) happening !

    The park has sent a male Andean condor to Buenos Aires zoo in Argentine, as a stopover before the bird is released into the wild, a first for a European bred condor.
