The same pair of Short-toed Eagles returned to their breeding site in the Judean Foothills /map/ yet on February 26th. They were choosing between nests where HD cameras had been installed. Finally, after period of nest building, rituals and mating, the female laid an egg on March 18th. From that moment on, the broadcast has started.

This video footage is made up of short parts shot in Northern Ukraine within 2017-2019 years during field observations at Short-toed Eagles’ breeding and hunting areas. The attention was aimed rather at various kinds of behaviour, including territorial conflicts, training of juveniles, individual behavioural features of particular birds.
The Lublin Ornithology Society started their projects on GPS-GSM telemetry of local adult Short-toed Eagles in 2012. Some results of them are available on sites of the society, as well as conservation programs. Just use the Polish name of the species «Gadożer» as a search word to find info regarding Short-toeds in the submitted files:
