Short-toed Eagles’ arrival to Italy in 2009

Places of the first observations. Map by data of Francesco Petretti
The first Short-toed Eagles in Italy were observed on the 26th and 27th of February in Tuscany. Most pairs are now displaying in my Maremma – Tolfa hills study area /map/. A pair of Short-toed Eagle has been breeding in one nesting territory for 37 years (since 1973) and all the territories I checked which were occupied in 2008 have one pair starting to display.

On the 15th of March I joined a group of hundreds of birdwatchers and ornithologists spotting Short-toed Eagles migrating over Arenzano (Genua, Liguria) in North-West Italy: more than 250 specimens were observed on Sunday. A flock consisted of 20 birds.
