The lineage of Short-toed Eagles from Southern Italy

May 31, 2020 / Comment

A picture of Michele taken by Victor MuñozEgidio the adult male Short-toed Eagle has been mentioned on our site since 2013. His chick named Michele in memory of Michele Panuccio was tagged with a transmitter as well in 2019. The young eagle has returned to the region of birth exactly like his father did it in his second calendar year. You can read a story of them on the Inglorious Bustards site:

• S. TONKIN, 2020 – A tale of two Eagles // ingloriousbustards.com (En).

Also, Ugo Mellone tells about the tagged Short-toed Eagles in the interview which is available on the Medraptors Facebook page.

 

Three 2cy Short-toeds with transmitters tracked in 2020

Apr 30, 2020 / 1 Comment

Three young Short-toed Eagles were tagged with transmitters when they were yet in the nests in Hungary, Montenegro and Italy in 2019. The eagles now are 2cy immature birds, still being tracked and their migration behaviour is of great interest.

The long field research on two raptors Short-toed Eagle and Long-legged Buzzard in the Judean Foothills /map/ allowed Guilad Friedemann to prepare his PhD Thesis which was published a few years ago:

An adult female Short-toed EagleThe document available at ResearchGate also contains articles published earlier and already covered on our site.

The research continues and we are looking forward to new broadcasts, videos and papers shared by the Israeli team.

 

Trends of Short-toed Eagle population in India

Feb 29, 2020 / Comment

Ten Bird Species Whose Populations in India Have DeclinedKunal Kambli in his recent post for The Weather Channel writes that Short-toed Eagle is among the species whose populations in India have declined in last years according to:

• SoIB 2020. State of India’s Birds, 2020: Range, trends and conservation status. The SoIB Partnership. Pp 50. – Short-toed Eagle. file (En).

Unlike others, the population of Short-toeds in India is settled. Although, there are no more or less exact evaluations of its current size, it is undoubtedly significant, and the species is under highest legal protection in the country. However, the short- and long-term negative trends are ascertained on the background of the global population trend estimated as stable. This is a kind of unpleasant surprise and causes of the local population decline deserve to be figured out and analysed in details.
