ST Eagle nesting in central southern Switzerland

Dec 17, 2017 / Comment

The next recently published article is dedicated to tracking a breeding attempt of Short-toed Eagles in the Canton of Ticino /map/:

• Filippo RAMPAZZI, Luca PAGANO, 2017 – La nidificazione del biancone Circaetus gallicus nel Cantone Ticino (Svizzera) [Nesting of Short-toed Eagle in the Canton of Ticino (Switzerland)] // Bollettino della Società ticinese di scienze naturali, 105: 77-85. – Short-toed Eagle. file (It) {rough translation}.

The record of successful breeding after the long absence of such data for central southern Switzerland can be considered as an evidence of Short-toed Eagle spread in Switzerland and northern Italy in recent years.

Our sincere thanks to Luca Pagano for kind sharing the paper!
