S.t.Eagle update

All four Short-toed Eagles with satellite transmitters are here in Israel /map/. One of them (the male) we know where he is nesting, so hopefully we will get some pictures.

Best regards

    Hi Sameh!
    view largerBreeding transmitter carrier, it’s amazing! Hope we will see some new photos this year. Just one question, you probably know the answer. Has somebody studied Short-toed Eagles’ migrating or other movements using satellite transmitters, except Dr. Meyburg and you?

    Once somewhere on the Net I read something about such researches near Gibraltar; there was a text with photos and maps. One of them was saved (click thumbnail), but alas I couldn’t find the link back.

    Hi
    I am not aware of any other research dealing with satellite transmitters except for Meyburg’s and recently me also. I have seen the text on Short-toed Eagle with satellite trasmitter in Gibraltar but i couldnot get in touch with the researchers and didnot hear a confirmation if really they have done the transmittion or not. If anyone knows about that group please give us an update.

    I’ve found one pdf-document Short-toed Eagle. file with something like the confirmation. Page #12, fourth paragraph. The source is GONHS website.
    Also I know that Dr. John Cortes was a coordinator of the project on satellite tracking of two Short-toed Eagles (quotation: “Project details: Satellite transmitter PTT produced by “Microwave Technology Inc” , USA. Satellite tracking provided by ARGOS, France. Project co-ordinator John Cortes, Mapping by Charlie Perez using d-map. Project advisor Roy Dennis“).

    And probably in addition it would be right to put here a link to the Signals of Spring site and to what they’ve written about your work.

    thanks Konstantin for the information,
    Is the map you attached is for 2 of the eagles or for one? If you find the text for it please inform me.

    Hey dude,

    Yes, we are working with short-toed eagles in ALicante (Spain) and we have tagged 6 juveniles.
