In this picture, you can see
that one of the talons is missing. It appears to have been blown off.
Try to imagine for a moment what
it would be like for you to be missing a thumb. How would you pick up
food with a fork or spoon. How would you drink from a glass?
Talons are equally important
to an eagle because this is how they catch and hold onto their prey.
Missing this talon will make
it difficult but not impossible for him to survive in the wild.
