The long field research on two raptors Short-toed Eagle and Long-legged Buzzard in the Judean Foothills /map/ allowed Guilad Friedemann to prepare his PhD Thesis which was published a few years ago:

An adult female Short-toed EagleThe document available at ResearchGate also contains articles published earlier and already covered on our site.

The research continues and we are looking forward to new broadcasts, videos and papers shared by the Israeli team.

Comparative ecology of Short-toed Eagle in India

Oct 30, 2018 / Comment

Diet and breeding site characteristics of six different raptor species, including STE, in Central India are compared in the following article:

• Satish PANDE, Reuven YOSEF, Federico MORELLI, Rajkumar PAWAR and Ram MONE, 2018 – Diet and habitat affinities in six raptor species in India // Avian Research, 9:36. doi:10.1186/s40657-018-0129-2Short-toed Eagle. file (En).

That is a region where Short-toed Snake Eagles have potential food competitors. Besides, data on their diet and habitats in the Indian part of the distribution area are of great interest in themselves.
