Observations of ringed ST Eagles in Israel in 2018

Jun 28, 2018 / Comment

Guilad Friedemann reports on observations of 3 Short-toed Eagles tagged with number colour rings in the Judean Foothills /map/ in 2011 and 2012 (Grey 62, Orange 3 and White 14). Those Short-toed Eagle males have been photographed by different observers this year at the age of 7 and 8 CY. Small photo galleries are represented on Guilad’s FB page with his brief explanations and comments (Iw):

For example, the male tagged as "Orange 3" is fully adult, although, his parents are still active, continue to hold the territory and breed. It is always a great pleasure for a researcher to know that chicks found and ringed in the past, in spite of many dangers, have become the magnificent adult snake eagles, to see them now as virtuosic fliers, ultraprecise spotters, looking like amazing semi-mythical creatures in the end.

 

Manifesto against plastic

Manifeste anti-plastique

This document describes the problem of relationships between man and bird regarding methods of the colour marking. The text is available in French and in English now. Also you can say your opinion on the subject making the comment on the Manifeste anti-plastique blog in French or right here in English. As Short-toed Eagle researchers use the colour ringing and the alar marking methods in their work the question must be topical for them.

 

Who also paints S.t.Eagles?

A Short-toed Eagle painted on it’s underwing coverts with red, was seen in Jibraltar this Autumn. No one declared doing such thing and it could be someone not a researcher who has done this marking. At beginning we suspected it is one of mine, but later and after describing the marking seen, i understood it is not one of mine, and possibly not of a researcher because the mark was a huge mark with no coding method.

If anyone knows something about that please contact me at:
