Some news about the migration of ST Eagles in the Italian Peninsula.

Adult Short-toed Eagle in flight. Photo by Guido PremudaGuido Premuda‘s Sunbird.it has been complemented with new papers (It) on the Bibliography page. They all are dedicated to observations of migratory birds of prey in the Apuan Alps /map/ during several consecutive seasons, including records of numerous Short-toed Eagles:

• PREMUDA G., 2011 – La migrazione dei rapaci sulle Alpi Apuane (LU): campo autunno 2011 [The migration of birds of prey in the Apuan Alps: autumn camp 2011]. Infomigrans, 28-2011. – Short-toed Eagle. file.

• PREMUDA G., 2012 – La migrazione sulle Alpi Apuane (LU): campo Biancone Primavera 2012 [The migration in the Apuan Alps: spring Short-toed Eagle camp 2012]. Infomigrans 29-2012. – Short-toed Eagle. file.

• PREMUDA G., 2013 – La migrazione dei rapaci sulle Alpi Apuane: campo Biancone primavera 2013 [The migration of birds of prey in the Apuan Alps: spring Short-toed Eagle camp 2013]. Infomigrans 31-2013. – Short-toed Eagle. file.

• PREMUDA G., 2013 – Alpi Apuane (LU): campo Biancone settembre 2013 [The Apuan Alps: September Short-toed Eagle camp 2013]. Infomigrans 32-2013. – Short-toed Eagle. file.

• PREMUDA G. & FRANCHINI M., 2014 – Alpi Apuane (LU): campo Biancone settembre 2014 [The Apuan Alps: September Short-toed Eagle camp 2014]. Infomigrans 34-2014. – Short-toed Eagle. file.

This spring Egidio arrived in his birthplace again. This is a young male Short-toed Eagle fitted with a satellite transmitter in Regional Park Gallipoli Cognato /map/ in 2013 within the project which had been started with participation of Ugo Mellone yet in 2010 and later continued by Giuseppe Lucia.

 

Ecology and ethology of Short-toed Eagle, 1980

Feb 27, 2015 / Comment

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:

• Silvio BRUNO, Fabio PERCO, 1980 – Considerazioni ecologiche ed etologiche sul Biancone (Circaetus gallicus) [Ecological and ethological considerations on Short-toed Eagle] // Natura bresciana, vol. 17: pp. 124-210. – Short-toed Eagle. file (It).

The article is available on the Museo di Scienze webpage.
