The video clip shows climbing to nests of birds of prey while studying Short-toed Eagles and Long-legged Buzzards in the Judean Foothills (Israel) /map/ in 2012. This is the second video by Guilad Friedemann published on our site. Both the clips are available in HD quality. Just choose the appropriate YouTube quality settings.
This video made by Guilad Friedemann illustrates well fieldwork of Israeli researchers. Guilad studies interspecific relationships between Short-toed Eagles and Long-legged Buzzards in the Judean Foothills /map/. For this purpose several buzzards and eagles were tagged with special GPS loggers which provide an unique methodology of the tracking.
Please visit this page to read a story of Dorsey (Iw) – Short-toed Eagle, which was ringed by Sameh Darawshi in Israel /map/, was captured in Sudan and then was photographed in Israel again. The story is in Hebrew, but you may use Google Translate, for example, to English.

All four Short-toed Eagles with satellite transmitters are here in Israel /map/. One of them (the male) we know where he is nesting, so hopefully we will get some pictures.
Just a few words about a section dedicated to the subject of Sameh’s research “Agricultural influences on the ecology of the Short-toed Eagle (Circaetus gallicus) in the Judean slopes” /map/ on The Jerusalem Bird Observatory website.
The section, which can be rated as an independent site, includes such subsections as Gallery, Team, Research, Transmitters & Migration, About me and so on. You can find there notes and many photos illustrating the study development.
