GPS-GSM tracking of Short-toed Eagle in Croatia

Feb 11, 2018 / Comment

The first results of juvenile Short-toed Eagle tracking from the Telašćica Nature Park /map/ in Croatia are represented in the recent paper:

• Sven KAPELJ, Ivan BUDINSKI, Mate ZEC, Ivan KATANOVIĆ, Ivana ŠARIĆ, Iva ŠOŠTARIĆ, 2017 – The first results of GPS tracking of the Short-toed Eagle Circaetus gallicus in Croatia // Larus, Vol. 52, No. 1: pp. 65-67. – Short-toed Eagle. file (En).

The PDF is available on the Portal of scientific journals of Croatia HRČAK.

 

ST Eagle nesting in central southern Switzerland

Dec 17, 2017 / Comment

The next recently published article is dedicated to tracking a breeding attempt of Short-toed Eagles in the Canton of Ticino /map/:

• Filippo RAMPAZZI, Luca PAGANO, 2017 – La nidificazione del biancone Circaetus gallicus nel Cantone Ticino (Svizzera) [Nesting of Short-toed Eagle in the Canton of Ticino (Switzerland)] // Bollettino della Società ticinese di scienze naturali, 105: 77-85. – Short-toed Eagle. file (It) {rough translation}.

The record of successful breeding after the long absence of such data for central southern Switzerland can be considered as an evidence of Short-toed Eagle spread in Switzerland and northern Italy in recent years.

Our sincere thanks to Luca Pagano for kind sharing the paper!

 

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.

Life of Short-toed Eagles in photos by Bernard Joubert

Feb 19, 2017 / Comment

JOUBERT B. 2010-2016. Haute-LoireThese amazing pictures and text were published in the latest La Plume du Circaète. Few of them were included in the previous galleries of Bernard Joubert on our site. Then, several new photos taken in March 2016 have been added and described by the author. Many thanks to him for sharing the pictures and especially for detailed comments on them, also to Ferenc and Gábor Papp for their kind help in the translation!

Moments of life

During these 20 years, while we have been following the Short-toed Eagles, we could obtain numerous pictures taken in ideal conditions, some of which we later published, however, I never played with the thought seriously that I should take advantage of it since photography is very laborious and has little use in conservation.

Nevertheless, in 2010, I decided that I would give it a try at a nest site where I could do it without any disturbance. In January, I built a hide, which I dug in the ground about twenty metres from the nest. I made a frame of beech and covered it with smaller pine branches. This nest site seemed to attract this particular pair, they visited it during last autumn several times.

I made myself comfortable in the hide in the first days of March, not knowing how remarkable moments and wonderful events of the everyday life I would experience soon.

I used a quite mediocre Nikon camera with 110 mm equivalent focus length*, but still I could record their whole breeding cycle except incubation without being noticed by them.

I would like to share a few pictures…

Jan 31, 2017 / Comment

PISMENNYI K. 2016. Northern UkraineHere is the next annual gallery of pictures taken in Kiev, Chernihiv and Sumy Regions of Northern Ukraine in 2016. Short-toed Eagles of local pairs monitored during more than 10 years are captured in them. All the birds are indicated in captions by a letter and a year of the first representation in photo galleries on our site, starting with A11 – the old, very striped and dark-spotted, rather small but aggressive female living in the Mizhrichynskyi Nature Park /map/.
