September 12th, 2016 / Comment

As previously announced, the 4th meeting of the Short-toed Snake Eagle French national network in Roquefixade (the Ariège Department) /map/ is scheduled for October 8th and 9th, 2016. This conference is a meeting between passionate volunteers and not a scientific symposium. The program is not yet complete and it is still possible to propose communications. Any experience in monitoring Short-toed Eagles is of great interest and deserves to be shared.

Please, read the detailed information about the meeting: PDF file (Fr).

More historical data about Short-toed Eagles in Switzerland can be found on a webpage of the journal Ornithologische Beobachter:

• Karl Daut, 1910 – Seltenere Vertreter der schweizerischen Avifauna. Der Schlangenadler – Circaetus gallicus (Gm.) [A rare representative of the Swiss avifauna. Short-toed Eagle] // Der Ornithologische Beobachter, VIII (1): pp. 1-3. – Short-toed Eagle. file (De).

The former and present state of the species in the Canton of Valais /map/ is described in the communication, published this year:

Lionel Maumary, 2015 – Nouvelle nidification du Circaète Jean-le-Blanc en Valais [New nesting of Short-toed Eagle in Valais] // Oiseaux.ch (Fr).

Ornotho.ch search results for Circaète Jean-le-BlancThe following web resource deserves to be mentioned again: the map of the sighting locations is available for the registered contributors of Ornitho.ch only. However, any visitor of the site can view the photo gallery. The most of the pictures of Short-toed Eagles represented there have been taken in Switzerland.

 

Snake Eagles in human cultural interpretations

November 14th, 2015 / Comment

The image of an eagle holding a snake : La Chaise-Dieu (France)The images of an eagle killing a snake is quite widely distributed and can be found in various works of art in different countries, with different cultural traditions, rather geographically distant from each other. Some considerations to this matter are given by Bernard Joubert in his short essay for the next issue of the La Plume du Circaète bulletin which is prepared for release in the near future:

• Bernard JOUBERT, 2015 – Malheur des uns, bonheur des autres [Unhappiness of some, delight of others] // short-toed-eagle.net (Fr).
