Ringing of Short-toed Eagles in Hungary

Aug 31, 2016 / Comment

SERFŐZŐ J, KOSSUTH L & others. 2016. The Zemplén and the Pilis MountainsThe program of ringing Short-toed Eagles is continuing in Hungary; 4 individuals were tagged this year:

3 chicks were ringed in the Zemplén Hills /map/ by István Béres (ringer), József Serfőző (climber), Zoltán Turny and Gábor Papp, nests were on Pinus sylvestris. Ring codes used: blue ring with white letters; A28, A29, A30.

1 chick was ringed in the Pilis Hills /map/ by Attila Feldhoffer (ringer), Vince Schwartz and Levente Kossuth (climber). There the pair has been nesting on oak (Quercus petraea). Ring code used: A41.

According to the Ringing Centre 83 Short-toed Eagles received rings up to date. Most of them were chicks tagged with aluminum rings in nests.

Ringing is usually carried out in mid-July. Totally, 24 individuals received colour-rings in Hungary: 20133; 20147; 201510; 20164.

The very first observation came this year from the Hortobágy region on July 21. The bird was ringed in the Bükk Hills on July 20, 2014. Besides two observations of aluminium ringed individuals, and a recovery from Syria in 2000 (a bird ringed in 1993 in Tokaj, part of the Zemplén Hills and caught in Syria in 1997 during spring migration) this year’s colour-ringed observation was the first when the bird could be identified. According to recommendations of Gábor Papp, local nature photographers are taking pictures of Short-toed Eagles even from a great distance to be able to check a ring presence and for filling a kind of database of their individual appearances.

SERFŐZŐ J. 2014. The Zemplén Mountains

This is just a small photo gallery of ringing Short-toed Eagle chicks in the Zemplén Mountains /map/. The juveniles were ringed by István Béres; the climber and the photographer was József Serfőző.
Gábor Papp reports that 4 eaglets were colour-ringed there this year and also ringing of 2 more was orginized by Zoltán Turny (MME/Birdlife) in Transdanubia /map/ and was done by rangers of Danube-Ipoly National Park at the following sites:
Vértes – by Antal Klébert and István Staudinger; this is the 2nd year that the pair use this nest on an oak;
the Budai Hills – by Bíró Sándor and Zoltán Turny; this is the 4th year in a row of breeding in this nest on a pine.

Colour-ringed Short-toed Eagle

Jul 5, 2008 / 7 Comments
Short-toed Eagle (CIRCAETUS GALLICUS) / by KING R. 2008

Date: 30th April 2008
Time: 18:50
Species: Short-toed Eagle
Location: Jews Gate Bird Observatory, Gibraltar
Rings: Two colour rings on left leg, Green over Red

Details: The bird was migrating north, seen arriving over the Straits of Gibraltar from Africa, then being mobbed by the resident pair of Ravens and many Yellow-legged Gulls. The bird passed low overhead before continuing northwards into Spain.

I’m interested to know when and where the bird was ringed and any further information you can supply.
