Short-toed Eagle breeding biology in NW India

Aug 31, 2017 / Comment

Ritualised behaviour between the female and male Short-toed Snake Eagle / by D. MoriAn article about breeding of Short-toed Eagles in Surendranagar District /map/ has been published in the Indian BIRDS – Journal of South Asian Ornithology this year. Such releases are always of great interest because observation data on Indian Short-toed Eagles are rarely available on the Web:
