The amazing migration of the Judean Short-toed Eagle. Video by Guilad Friedemann (available in HD quality)

One more contribution from Guilad Friedemann. This time it is a video presentation. Using Google Earth tools Guilad invites us to follow David, one of the Short-toed Eagles tagged with the special GPS-loggers, from his home range in the Judean Foothills /map/ to the wintering grounds in Sudan. The virtual tour on his migration route is amazing!
