Harkirat Sangha was actively involved in caring for the sick eagle. Fortunately, it recovered after two weeks and was released at Tal Chhapar, Rajasthan on 16 March 2016. We thank Dr. Igor Karyakin and the Raptor Ringing Center of the Russian Raptor Research and Conservation Network http://rrrcn.ru/en/ringing for this interesting information on raptor migration.

Here is a photograph of the chicks on the nest during ringing:
