Two young Short-toed Eagles, this time Egidio and Irene, have been fitted with satellite transmitters in Regional Park Gallipoli Cognato /map/ again. You can find the map showing the birds’ migration and also read a short history of the project since 2010 on the same webpage. Thanks to Ugo Mellone for informing us!

The satellite tracking project continues in Southern Italy this year. Three juvenile Short-toed Eagles were tagged with transmitters in Regional Park Gallipoli Cognato /map/. The project is managed by Giuseppe Lucia and Ugo Mellone (University of Alicante). Maps with the tracks are available on the Regional Park Gallipoli Cognato website.
New satellite tracking project has started in Southern Italy this summer. Two juvenile Short-toed Eagles were tagged with transmitters in Regional Park Gallipoli Cognato /map/.

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.
