Guilad Friedemann and the team started the live stream of another nest of the same Short-toed Eagle pair in the Judean Foothills /map/ this year, since April 2nd. As well as last year, the broadcast is available on the Israeli Birding Portal. For more details, also, please visit the Facebook community page of the Israel Raptor Nest Cam project.
Results of a comparative study of using foraging resources by Short-toed Eagles and Long-legged Buzzards in the Judean Foothills /map/ are reported in the following fresh article of Guilad Friedemann & others:

This year Guilad Friedemann and the team managed to start a new live broadcast from another nest of Short-toed Eagles in the Judean Foothills /map/. The video stream is available on the Israeli Birding Portal. A short history can be viewed on the Facebook community page of the Israel Raptor Nest Cam project.

The presented work is available on a website of the Electronic Theses & Dissertations Center. It is based on unique research data of Guilad Friedemann collected in period of 2011-2014. The main goal of the work was detection of the correlation between various environmental factors and migratory movements of Short-toed Eagles and Long-legged Buzzards of the Judean Foothills’ populations /map/:

Many thanks to Guilad Friedemann for kind information about a new project of the KKL Fund – HD Web camera at a nest of Short-toed Eagle in Israel /map/. The online stream and a brief description of the project are available in Hebrew now, the English translation will appear soon. Besides, you can find texts about Guilad’s research in English and in Hebrew, view current data on observations of STE in the country and enjoy a video recently recorded with the installed camera; more clips are also listed on this page now. So help you Google Translate!
UPD May 1st, 2015: the Facebook community has been created for uploading and watching video clips made with the camera.
