Although we deal with Imperial eagles on a daily basis, in most cases we wouldn’t be able to share much more information about ringed birds than their place of birth and - thanks to a few observations - the territory of their choice.
There are special individuals however, whose life history is unconventional, so they definitely deserve a more detailed introduction.
Great news from Serbia this spring. Bird protection and Study Society of Serbia/BirdLife Serbia (BPSSS) is reporting that in the fourth year of realization PannonEagle Life project, Serbian population of Imperial Eagles finally got two new nesting pairs, which makes them three in total with the old pair named Bora and Erzika.
Only a month went by since our last news of two raptor poisoning incidents within the Hortobágy National Park Directorate (HNPI), but we have to report two new suspected poisoning cases once again. The toxicological examinations are still ongoing.
MME’s detection canine units and the national park ranger service have been continuing its work during the coronavirus pandemic. From January till mid-April, numerous birds of prey, mammals showing symptoms of poisoning as well as poisoned baits were found at seven different crime scenes so far.
