Also, you can view here a few tables containing statistical data collected in the region within 2004-2016 years and processed to a certain extent. The artificial platform for Short-toed Eagle nestingThey include: general breeding success, frequency of nesting tree change, distances between two nesting trees occupied by one pair in two consecutive seasons and between all nesting trees at the same breeding sites, nesting tree diameter, nest height, estimated nest departure dates, reproduction rate of certain pairs.

Life of Short-toed Eagles in photos by Bernard Joubert https://short-toed-eagle.net/life-of-short-toed-eagles-in-photos-by-bernard-joubert/ https://short-toed-eagle.net/life-of-short-toed-eagles-in-photos-by-bernard-joubert/#respond Sun, 19 Feb 2017 18:59:22 +0000 https://short-toed-eagle.net/?p=2514 JOUBERT B. 2010-2016. Haute-LoireThese amazing pictures and text were published in the latest La Plume du Circaète. Few of them were included in the previous galleries of Bernard Joubert on our site. Then, several new photos taken in March 2016 have been added and described by the author. Many thanks to him for sharing the pictures and especially for detailed comments on them, also to Ferenc and Gábor Papp for their kind help in the translation!

Moments of life

During these 20 years, while we have been following the Short-toed Eagles, we could obtain numerous pictures taken in ideal conditions, some of which we later published, however, I never played with the thought seriously that I should take advantage of it since photography is very laborious and has little use in conservation.

Nevertheless, in 2010, I decided that I would give it a try at a nest site where I could do it without any disturbance. In January, I built a hide, which I dug in the ground about twenty metres from the nest. I made a frame of beech and covered it with smaller pine branches. This nest site seemed to attract this particular pair, they visited it during last autumn several times.

I made myself comfortable in the hide in the first days of March, not knowing how remarkable moments and wonderful events of the everyday life I would experience soon.

I used a quite mediocre Nikon camera with 110 mm equivalent focus length*, but still I could record their whole breeding cycle except incubation without being noticed by them.

I would like to share a few pictures…

* – also, photos taken with Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 are included.

Northern UkraineHere is the next annual gallery of pictures taken in Kiev, Chernihiv and Sumy Regions of Northern Ukraine in 2016. Short-toed Eagles of local pairs monitored during more than 10 years are captured in them. All the birds are indicated in captions by a letter and a year of the first representation in photo galleries on our site, starting with A11 – the old, very striped and dark-spotted, rather small but aggressive female living in the Mizhrichynskyi Nature Park /map/.

A fact file on Short-toed Eagle by Ela Foundation https://short-toed-eagle.net/a-fact-file-on-short-toed-eagle-by-ela-foundation/ https://short-toed-eagle.net/a-fact-file-on-short-toed-eagle-by-ela-foundation/#respond Wed, 28 Dec 2016 09:39:23 +0000 /?p=2464 Ela Foundation fact file on Short-toed EagleThe presented fact file is quite outstanding because it is mainly based on information collected in India, a region with the great sedentary Short-toed Eagle population. Despite the fact that the species biology in the region is definitely of great interest, too few data on it is currently available. Consequently, this information sheet contains details which could be fairly surprising for European researchers. Secondly, this is simply a good example of an informative poster. The file can be found on the Ela Foundation website.
