In the Fero Isles an Eagle flew away with a child (which its mother had left for a few moments), and bore it off to its aerie.
Slowly he climbed the steep and crooked trail to their aerie at the peak.
Its aerie, which is of considerable dimensions, it builds amongst the most inaccessible rocks.

If he caught one pointing for his aerie, he would block the way and bid her sternly begone.

"eagle's nest," 1580s (attested in Anglo-Latin from early 13c.), from Old French aire "nest," Medieval Latin area "nest of a bird of prey" (12c.), perhaps from Latin area "level ground, garden bed" [Littré], though some doubt this [Klein]. Another theory connects it to atrium. Formerly misspelled eyrie (1660s) on the mistaken assumption that it derived from Middle English ey "egg."
