The represented article by Sameh Darawshi and others has been recently published in the latest issue of the Journal of Raptor Research:

Sameh DARAWSHI, Yossi LESHEM and Uzi MOTRO, 2017 – Aggregations and Dietary Changes of Short-toed Snake-Eagles: A New Phenomenon Associated with Modern Agriculture // Journal of Raptor Research, Vol. 51 (4): pp. 446-450. (En).

Part with aggregation: You can see here the special phenomenon in my study area /map/, where many Short-toed Eagles flying over one field (aggregation) that is being worked up by a tractor, waiting for the prey (mainly rodents!) to be exposed by the tractor so that they dive quickly on the prey.

Part with Short-toed eagle chasing a rodent: You can see here a Short-toed Eagle chasing a rodent (Gerbil) that has succeeded to get out of a ploughing, and after a relatively long pursuit the Eagle managed to get it.

Catching a rodent: here you can see another part where Short-toed Eagle gets a Field Vole in his talons (you can even hear the rodent screaming).

 

Updating the site with my research

Hi

First I want to bless the creator of this website for such an initiative. As a Short-toed Eagle lover and researcher I think we have here a great opportunity to exchange information and concentrate efforts in loving and understanding this lovely Animal.

My research on the Short-toed Eagle here in Israel /map/ brings a totally new aspects that are different or even contradict what is known about Short-toed Eagle in other places i.e. Aggregation and high rodent content in diet, also highest breeding density in the world.

I have replied positively to the creator of this website’s offer to give some updates on the Short-toed Eagle in my study area.

Hence, I am declaring that some updates would be added from time to time.

Any researcher or any birdwatcher, farmer or a field guy who has seen familiar phenomenon with Short-toed Eagle aggregation in his area is kindley requested to send a report to HoverOverUs • Short-toed-Eagle and to me at the following adress:

Best wishes,

This not big text written by Sameh Darawshi represents his project of researching Short-toed Eagles:

Sameh Darawshi, 2006 – Aggregation, movement dynamics and feeding habits of the Short-toed Snake-Eagle in relation to agricultural activities in the Judean slopes // short-toed-eagle.net (En) /map/.

This text may be regarded as a preview of the great and long-term research of Short-toed Eagles in the Middle East.
