Bonelli's Eagle Cam - 2011

The Cam is high up and you can see The river Duoro flowing underneath!
There are already two eggs in the nest!
The cam sound is good - prepare to turn it down Grin

Follow this Link for the Cam

Be aware that this nest is in Spain - so it is 8hrs before Vancouver (or will be when everyone's clocks go forward)

The nest is in the Northern Autonomous communities of Spain - Castilla y León
Map


More Info Here

The numbers of Bonelli have suffered a decline in recent years - taking it from the "Of special Interest" Classification - to "Vulnerable"

This decline has been worse in the Castile and Leon area than in the rest of the Iberian Peninsula.
It has suffered a drop of 80% since 1970. But they have passed a 'Plan of Conservation' in 2006.
There are many reasons for this decline - but it is feared that the electrification of the area is the chief culprit!! Made worse by a deterioration in it's habitat - and diseases of it's chief prey - rabbits and hares!

It is all fully explained at the Cam website - but in Spanish!!

The Bonelli's Eagle (Aquila fasciata) is a large bird of prey. Like all eagles, it belongs to the family Accipitridae. It breeds in southern Europe, Africa both north and south of the Sahara Desert and across southern Asia to Indonesia. It is usually a resident breeder which lays 1-3 eggs in a tree or crag nest.

The Bonelli's Eagle is a species of wooded, often hilly, country with some open areas. The African race prefers savannah, forest edges, cultivation, and scrub, provided there are some large trees; this is not a species of very open or densely forested habitats.


The Head (click for bigger)

This is a small to medium - sized eagle at 55–65 cm in length. The upperparts are dark brown, and the underside is white with dark streaks. The wings are relatively short and rounded. The long tail is grey on top and white below and has a single broad black terminal band. The feet and eyes are yellow.

The Bonelli's Eagle takes a wide range of live prey, all taken alive. It usually hunts from cover by a quick dash from inside a tree, but it will also catch prey by quartering hill slopes like other eagles, or make a stoop from a soaring position. Most prey is taken on the ground.


An Adult Bonelli (click for bigger)

This eagle takes large prey items, usually mammals or birds. Mammals up to the size of a hare are regularly taken, and birds up to guineafowl size. The Bonelli's Eagle is usually silent except in display and near the nest. Its fluted klu-kluklu-kluee call is less shrill than that of its near relatives.
