The following papers are describing the distribution of Short-toed Eagle in central and north-eastern regions of Italy, and the related issues:

GPS-GSM tagging of Short-toed Eagles in Hungary

Oct 14, 2017 / Comment

Within the framework of the Turjánvidék LIFE project, which aims the preservation of habitats of such species as the endangered Hungarian Meadow Viper (Vipera ursinii rakosiensis), two Ecotone GPS-GSM trackers were bought in 2016. The main aim was to follow the life of a Short-toed Eagle pair residing close to and hunting regularly on viper habitats. Since the capture of the adult male failed in 2017, experts marked the offspringÖrs on SATELLITETRACKING.EU of this pair with the transmitter /map/. The chick was named Örs, an ancient Hungarian name meaning «human», «man» or «hero» but also a name of a Hungarian tribe from ancient times.

Örs left the natal area on October 1st and its tracks can be followed on SATELLITETRACKING.EU.

The other transmitter was deployed on a repatriated individual in 2016, which died two months later in Poland. Its tracks are not available on the aforementioned website yet, however, another post will appear here if so.

A fact file on Short-toed Eagle by Ela Foundation

Dec 28, 2016 / Comment

Ela Foundation fact file on Short-toed EagleThe presented fact file is quite outstanding because it is mainly based on information collected in India, a region with the great sedentary Short-toed Eagle population. Despite the fact that the species biology in the region is definitely of great interest, too few data on it is currently available. Consequently, this information sheet contains details which could be fairly surprising for European researchers. Secondly, this is simply a good example of an informative poster. The file can be found on the Ela Foundation website.

 

Short-toed Eagles in Isère. Reviews and galleries

Mar 20, 2016 / Comment

Les galeries : Circaète Jean-le-BlancA lot of information about observations and data on the current state of Short-toed Eagle population in the Isère Department /map/ are available on the LPO Mission rapaces and Faune Isère sites. Foremost, the following article by Françoise Chevalier deserves a particular attention:

Françoise CHEVALIER, 2014 – Quatorze ans de recherche et de suivi des couples de circaète Jean-le-Blanc Circaetus gallicus dans le sud-est du département de l’Isère [Fourteen years of research and monitoring of Short-toed Eagle in the southeast of the Isère Department] // Le Bièvre, tome 26: pp. 26-33. – Short-toed Eagle. file (Fr).

Also, please refer to the latest annual review:

• Françoise CHEVALIER, 2015 – Circaète Jean-le-Blanc Circaetus gallicus. Etude et suivis en Isère (38). Bilan 2015 [Short-toed Eagle. Research and monitoring in Isère. Summary for 2015] : 4 p. – Short-toed Eagle. file (Fr).

 

STE in Switzerland, the historical and current data

Dec 30, 2015 / Comment

More historical data about Short-toed Eagles in Switzerland can be found on a webpage of the journal Ornithologische Beobachter:

• Karl Daut, 1910 – Seltenere Vertreter der schweizerischen Avifauna. Der Schlangenadler – Circaetus gallicus (Gm.) [A rare representative of the Swiss avifauna. Short-toed Eagle] // Der Ornithologische Beobachter, VIII (1): pp. 1-3. – Short-toed Eagle. file (De).

The former and present state of the species in the Canton of Valais /map/ is described in the communication, published this year:

Lionel Maumary, 2015 – Nouvelle nidification du Circaète Jean-le-Blanc en Valais [New nesting of Short-toed Eagle in Valais] // Oiseaux.ch (Fr).

Ornotho.ch search results for Circaète Jean-le-BlancThe following web resource deserves to be mentioned again: the map of the sighting locations is available for the registered contributors of Ornitho.ch only. However, any visitor of the site can view the photo gallery. The most of the pictures of Short-toed Eagles represented there have been taken in Switzerland.

 

Importance of natural habitats for STE in Israel

Sep 1, 2015 / Comment

The following new paper describes the relation of Short-toed Eagle population to the availability of natural habitats which are being used by them as breeding sites in the Judea region of Israel /map/:

• Ezra Hadad, Gilad Weil and Motti Charter, 2015 – The importance of natural habitats as Short-toed Eagle (Circaetus gallicus) breeding sites // Avian Biology Research, 8 (3): pp. 160–166. – Short-toed Eagle. file (En).

Thanks a lot to Dr. Motti Charter for sharing the file!

 

Alexander Abuladze: Short-toed Eagle in Georgia

Alexander Abuladze's book: Birds of Prey of Georgia

At this time, when Short-toed Eagles are arriving to their breeding sites in northern parts of their European and Asian areal, we would like to draw your attention to the article about Short-toed Eagle from the monograph of Dr. Alexander Abuladze:

• Abuladze A., 2013 – Materials towards a Fauna of Georgia. Is. VI. Birds of Prey of Georgia. – Tbilisi. – 218 pp.: Short-toed Eagle Circaetus gallicus Gmelin, 1788 – P. 65-71. (En).

Heartfelt thanks to the author for sharing the text and photos of habitats! Johannes Jansen‘s review of the book can be found here.
