STE in Switzerland, the historical and current data

Dec 30, 2015 / Comment

More historical data about Short-toed Eagles in Switzerland can be found on a webpage of the journal Ornithologische Beobachter:

• Karl Daut, 1910 – Seltenere Vertreter der schweizerischen Avifauna. Der Schlangenadler – Circaetus gallicus (Gm.) [A rare representative of the Swiss avifauna. Short-toed Eagle] // Der Ornithologische Beobachter, VIII (1): pp. 1-3. – Short-toed Eagle. file (De).

The former and present state of the species in the Canton of Valais /map/ is described in the communication, published this year:

Lionel Maumary, 2015 – Nouvelle nidification du Circaète Jean-le-Blanc en Valais [New nesting of Short-toed Eagle in Valais] // Oiseaux.ch (Fr).

Ornotho.ch search results for Circaète Jean-le-BlancThe following web resource deserves to be mentioned again: the map of the sighting locations is available for the registered contributors of Ornitho.ch only. However, any visitor of the site can view the photo gallery. The most of the pictures of Short-toed Eagles represented there have been taken in Switzerland.

 

Data on Short-toed Eagle in new birding DBs

Circaetus gallicus by Oksana Raldugina on uabirds.org

The new birding database has been created this year for collecting pictures, geographical locations and other data of observations from Ukrainian birdwatchers. Among information on other species, it contains details of new records of Short-toed Eagles in various regions of Ukraine. The site has been made by Askar Isabekov and Andrew Simon as an analog of the well-known project for Kazakhstan that has already existed for 10 years. One more similar website is dedicated to Siberian birds. There is not any record of Short-toed Eagle on the last one yet; nevertheless, even isolated observations made at the edge of the species range would be of the great interest for ST Eagle researchers.

Information about certain species of Indian birds of prey is rare on the web. Short-toed Eagle is not an exception. The following websites a little open a window to the world of Indian snake eagles.

India Nature Watch: Short-toed Snake EagleThis collection of photos was already mentioned on our site. During the last 7 years a huge amount of magnificent pictures taken by Indian nature photographers has been added to the galleries. They show Short-toed Eagles in the local natural environment.

Short-toed Eagle with a branchThe second site, India Biodiversity Portal, is an interactive online database of observations for Indian birds and animals, and generally a repository of information on India’s biodiversity. Normal for such portals maps with points of occurrences and observations, as well as photos and videos are available there. This video deserves special attention: two Short-toed Eagles found themselves on the ground when, all appearances, they were fighting. The scene was captured near the Pocharam Wildlife Sanctuary /map/.
