Mar 31, 2019 / 1 Comment

Live broadcast from Short-toed Eagle nestThe live broadcast from a nest of the same pair of Short-toed Eagles living in the Judean Foothills /map/ has been renewed by Guilad Friedemann and the team again. This is the fourth breeding season of the pair we can watch in real time on the Israeli Birding Portal, and the fifth one if you include the live stream in 2015. The history of the current project and all video footages of Short-toed Eagles and other birds of prey available since 2016 can be found on the Israel Raptor Nest Cam Facebook page.

Please note: when the broadcast is unavailable just reload the page or revisit it a bit later.

 

Observations of ringed ST Eagles in Israel in 2018

Jun 28, 2018 / Comment

Guilad Friedemann reports on observations of 3 Short-toed Eagles tagged with number colour rings in the Judean Foothills /map/ in 2011 and 2012 (Grey 62, Orange 3 and White 14). Those Short-toed Eagle males have been photographed by different observers this year at the age of 7 and 8 CY. Small photo galleries are represented on Guilad’s FB page with his brief explanations and comments (Iw):

For example, the male tagged as "Orange 3" is fully adult, although, his parents are still active, continue to hold the territory and breed. It is always a great pleasure for a researcher to know that chicks found and ringed in the past, in spite of many dangers, have become the magnificent adult snake eagles, to see them now as virtuosic fliers, ultraprecise spotters, looking like amazing semi-mythical creatures in the end.
