Read full description of the books Callanish:This is a book I read several times in my teens. I wonder what I would think of it now as an adult?
Lets see if I can get hold of a copy and I will tell you,but as I remember I found the story very unusual and fascinating. Its true that the birds does have some human traits to make us symphatize with them bur there was also enough otherness about their characters that didnt make you think of them as actual humans.
A rare golden eaglet is captured and taken to a zoo where he befriends other birds of prey.in particular a sorrpwful older female eagle who becomes his friend.
The ending especially is very moving.
A bit sad as it seems the golden eagle no longer exist in Great Brian
