Roquefixade: a lot of sites for Short-toed Snake EaglesParticipants of the 4th Circaetus meeting

After Langeac (2004), Nadaillac (2008), and Florac (2012) the 4th Circaetus meeting took place in Roquefixade (the Ariège Department), on October 8th and 9th, 2016. Forty naturalists involved in the monitoring of the species, found themselves there at the invitation of Nature Midi-Pyrénées and LPO Mission Rapaces, to share their experience of the studies. The total number of the meeting participants was about fifty. The program illustrated the diversity of birders’ approaches within their means and goals.

Findings of the eagles in the Chernihiv Polissya

Sep 27, 2014 / Comment

The northern part of Chernihiv Region, so-called the Chernihiv Polissya /map/, is one of the best regions of Ukraine for Short-toed Eagles’ habitation. These lands, rich in Grass Snakes, Vipers, other reptiles and also in old pine forests, provide the eagles with good conditions for foraging and nesting. An expert in Ukrainian birds of prey, Sergey Domashevsky, during the expedition in 2009 has recorded several probable territorial pairs of the eagles there. Some of them were observed between the Sozh, the Dnieper rivers and Zamglay Bog /map/.

SKEETER A, SIMON A, MOROZ V, PISMENNYI K. 2011-2014. Chernihiv PolissyaThis year a local birdwatcher, Artem Skeeter, has found Short-toed Eagles’ nest at a place where he saw them during a few years before. Artem has discovered the nest just after finding of one old tail feather under a perch at the breeding site.30.08.14 : an adult male Short-toed Eagle gives a snake to the juvenile not far from the nesting tree He has managed to take a video of feeding the juvenile eagle by its father on a pine within the site. Also photos of the birds have been taken there in 2011-2012 and this year by Artem and by Andrew Simon, Viktor Moroz and me. This year’s juvenile could already fly on August 9. The date is the earliest known in Northern Ukraine for the last 10 years. On September 9 another juvenile Short-toed Eagle, judging by all, an offspring of the neighbour pair, was observed in the hovering flight over typical hunting grounds far from forests, that is unusually early for this region too.

Continuing research on Short-toed Eagle and Long-legged Buzzard in Israel in 2013. Video by Guilad Friedemann (available in HD quality)

The presented video has been made by Guilad Friedemann as a compilation of various moments of his ongoing research in the Judean Foothills (Israel) /map/ for 2013. The clip takes a little time (6 minutes) to view but provides an insight into the process of the field work and into conditions of it. Also you can see beautiful scenes of local wildlife. Just don’t forget to choose HD quality while watching the video.
