Two articles on Short-toed Eagle available online

We wrote about these two papers (López-Iborra et al., Yáñez et al.) after they had been published. Now full texts of them are available as well:

• G. M. López-Iborra, R. Limiñana, D. Pavón and J. E. Martínez-Pérez, 2011 – Modelling the distribution of Short-toed Eagle (Circaetus gallicus) in semi-arid Mediterranean landscapes: identifying important explanatory variables and their implications for its conservation // European Journal of Wildlife Research, 57: pp. 83-93. – Short-toed Eagle. file (En).

B. Yáñez, A.-R. Muñoz, K. L. Bildstein, I. Newton, A. G. Toxopeus and M. Ferrer, 2014 – Individual Variation in the Over-Summering Areas of Immature Short-Toed Snake Eagles Circaetus gallicus // Acta Ornithologica, 49 (1): pp. 137-141. – Short-toed Eagle. file (En).

 

White Short-toed Eagle fledgling in Spain in 2013

November 22nd, 2015 / 1 Comment

EL ÁGUILA BLANCA (Circaetus gallicus)This bird had been photographed by Javier G. in Peñaflor (the environments of Zaragoza city, Spain) /map/ in August 2013. Thanks to the author and to Javier Blasco-Zumeta we have the following information about that unique record of leucism in Short-toed Snake Eagle:

That absolutely white bird was born in a forest of Aleppo pine (Pinus halepensis), successfully left the nest, was observed in its territory until the end of September, and when it was time to start the migration the juvenile Short-toed Eagle flew away.

If the bird has survived, its return to Europe may be expected next year, after 2 years of probable wintering and summering in Africa.

Two more articles on migration of Short-toed Eagles came out this year:

Mellone U., Klaassen R.H.G., García-Ripollés C., Limiñana R., López-López P., Pavón D., Strandberg R., Urios V., Vardakis M., Alerstam T., 2012 – Interspecific comparison of the performance of soaring migrants in relation to morphology, meteorological conditions and migration strategies // PLoS ONE 7(7): e39833. doi:10.1371 / journal.pone.0039833 – Short-toed Eagle. file (En).

The first one is based on comparative data concerning Osprey, Marsh Harrier, Egyptian Vulture and Short-toed Eagle.

A new short report about summering immature Short-toed Eagles in Africa has been published. We express our gratitude to Ugo Mellone for placing the PDF version of it on his website:

Ugo Mellone, Beatriz Yáñez, Rubén Limiñana, A.-Román Muñoz, Diego Pavón, J.-Miguel González, Vicente Urios & Miguel Ferrer, 2011 – Summer staging areas of non-breeding Short-toed Snake Eagles Circaetus gallicus // Bird Study, iFirst: 1-6. – Short-toed Eagle. file (En).
