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.

As always, some explanatory comments can be found below the presented images.
Just a few words about a section dedicated to the subject of Sameh’s research “Agricultural influences on the ecology of the Short-toed Eagle (Circaetus gallicus) in the Judean slopes” /map/ on The Jerusalem Bird Observatory website.
The section, which can be rated as an independent site, includes such subsections as Gallery, Team, Research, Transmitters & Migration, About me and so on. You can find there notes and many photos illustrating the study development.
First I want to bless the creator of this website for such an initiative. As a Short-toed Eagle lover and researcher I think we have here a great opportunity to exchange information and concentrate efforts in loving and understanding this lovely Animal.
My research on the Short-toed Eagle here in Israel /map/ brings a totally new aspects that are different or even contradict what is known about Short-toed Eagle in other places i.e. Aggregation and high rodent content in diet, also highest breeding density in the world.
I have replied positively to the creator of this website’s offer to give some updates on the Short-toed Eagle in my study area.
Hence, I am declaring that some updates would be added from time to time.
Any researcher or any birdwatcher, farmer or a field guy who has seen familiar phenomenon with Short-toed Eagle aggregation in his area is kindley requested to send a report to HoverOverUs • Short-toed-Eagle and to me at the following adress:
This not big text written by Sameh Darawshi represents his project of researching Short-toed Eagles:

This text may be regarded as a preview of the great and long-term research of Short-toed Eagles in the Middle East.
