Our birds are absent Given the increase in cases of avian influenza in wild birds, the Zoo sauvage de Saint-Félicien has decided to its birds from their exhibits for an indefinite period. The health and well-being of our animals are priorities for us at all times. Thank you for your understanding.

Diet

Carnivorous, feeding principally on carrion, fish, ducks and small mammals.

Lifespan

Up to 20 years in the wild and around 40 years in captivity.

Reproduction

Sexually mature at 4 years. Mating and egg laying occurs between March and May. The 1-3 eggs are incubated by both the male and the female for 35 days. The young fledge after 72-75 days.

Predators

No natural predators for the adults. The eggs and eaglets can be preyed upon by the black-billed magpie, seagulls, common raven, crow, black bear, raccoon, wolverine, lynx and other birds of prey.

FAQ : What is the wingspan of large birds of prey ?

The wingspan is measured from tip to tip when wings are fully spread out. A bald eagle or golden eagle for example can have a 2-metre wingspan, while the wingspan of a red-tailed hawk, a common species in Quebec, would be 1.25 metres.
