Circaetus gallicus (drawn by F. Perco from a photo)The following detailed article dedicated to ecological and ethological aspects of biology of Short-toed Eagle had been published 35 years ago. The text addresses a variety of topics and can be of great interest to anyone who is studying the species. It is printed on 87 pages, has many beautiful pictures and includes data on distribution and conservation of STE on the Italian Peninsula:

Circaetus gallicus in the Netherlands and Eastern Slovakia

Thursday, November 27th, 2014 / Comment

We try to not miss an appearance of papers about Short-toed Eagle on the Web. Every freely accessible article is added to the collection, a kind of specialized library. Certainly, the majority of them aren’t new, but they are not of less interest due to this. The following ones can be viewed on websites of the journal of ornithology Tichodroma and of Sovon.nl, Dutch Centre for Field Ornithology:

• Štefan Danko, Jozef Mihók & Štefan Pčola, 2007 – Hniezdenie a výskyty hadiara krátkoprstého (Circaetus gallicus) na východnom Slovensku [Breeding and occurrence of the Short-toed Eagle in Eastern Slovakia] // Tichodroma 19: pp. 75–86. – Short-toed Eagle. file (Sk) /map/.

• Arjan Boele, Erik van Winden & Rik Winters, 2013 – Slangenarend en Noordse Nachtegaal nieuw in het BSP: van dwaalgast tot broedvogel? [Short-toed Eagle and Thrush Nightingale in the BSP: from accidental to breeding?] // Sovon-Nieuws, jaargang 26, nr 1: pp. 5-6. – Short-toed Eagle. file (Nl).

 

Short-toed Eagles in flight. Northern Ukraine. 2014

Saturday, November 22nd, 2014 / Comment
Fragments of Short-toed Eagles' flights in Northern Ukraine this year

These fragments of Short-toed Eagles’ flights have been shot at their breeding territories and hunting grounds in Kiev Region /map/ and in Mezhrechenskiy Park /map/ this year. The video is commented on, please, pay attention on subtitles. You can see eagles A11, B11, K11 and L11 in the clip. Certainly, also other more melodious names were given them for routine use. These STEs occupy their breeding sites within the same home ranges from year to year since at least 2006 and 2010. For a regular observer every bird has obvious individual traits. The video without compression can be downloaded.
