The Denver Zoo has a new surprise! On March fourth, a second Steller Sea Eagle chick has been born! Not fully fledged yet, the chick is already a magnificent bird.

One day my family and I were hiking near a lake and spotted a large eagle-looking bird. It had a white head except for a brown mask over the eyes and a chocolaty body.

This little discovery made my day!
The Denver Zoo has more than 3,500 different animals and their health is the results of the hard work of zookeepers and veterinarians. Veterinarians help cure the animals of any diseases or injuries. Without them, many animals would get sick and eventually die.
