Jo you made a new topic? Good idea!
is there anything else we want to know?

Hi Yarko,
can you please ask from mr.Looduskalender, which tree is the perching one?
i can`t figure it out :puzzled:
watched over and over the video with the eagle and didn`t find it.

This is the tree where the eagles are sitting; on Mutiklutis' pic' for instance.
the tree what is closest to camera, without leaves and everything (kuivanud), cant find the right word.

LK forum members have asked.
Answers: Mr Looduskalender
Translation: Kuremari


1. What kind of eagle did we see on the perch tree?

Merikotkas (Haliaeetus albicilla)
White-tailed Eagle Haliaeetus albicilla, also known as the Sea Eagle, Erne (sometimes Ern)

2. Does Mr.Looduskalender expect eagles to feed while all those hooligan ravens are there?

Ravens are very cautious, clever and sharp-sighted birds. They lead the eagles to places where food is.
That works the same way in the wild ( ravens find carrion in a bog, so the eagles know that they will find food)
Sea Eagles prefer open eating places so it is possible that they will not feed in the current place.
When the weather turns colder and the water will freeze over, the food will be placed on the ice between the islet and the current feeding place.
Hope, this will benefit the eagles.
Then may happen, that ravens will start harassing the eagles who stay for too long at the dinner table.
In any case I believe that future will bring us interesting and exciting moments.

a little information about yesterday( Nov. the 18th):
http://www.looduskalender.ee/node/1973

Two adult Sea Eagles and a juvenile (two winters old) were seen on the perch tree yesterday.
Seems the birds have get used to their feeding place.
It was fun to see the ravens, magpies and crows so peacefully together.

Good morning!

Not sure where this should be placed. Hopefully, here.

http://www.birdlife.org/datazone/specie ... urtherInfo (though not quite up to date, this seems to be a reliable source)

http://www.naturelight.ru/show_photo/14515.html 'My White-Tailed Friend' Date: Sep 6, 2008. Location: Russia, Astrakhan region (the Lower Volga)
There are two comments:
(1) 'Now there is a new problem in conservation of the white-tailed eagle. Because of frequent fish kills in rivers and reservoirs WTEs are gradually becoming scavengers rather than active hunters. In other words, the species hunting behavior stereotype is being changed. Such birds (scavengers) are less active, less smart. No one knows how this situation can be changed' [the area to which this applies is not indicated nor the source of information is provided]
(2) By the photographer: "Last winter in Astrakhan region was harsh and I saw on several occasions WTEs stealing chickens from poultry yards in the middle of the day... In the summer I managed to take several pics of a WTE attacking an egret in a water meadow. I also observed several times how this particular friend of mine makes use of cormorants.
A family of these WTEs resides a couple of kilometers away from a colony of cormorants. Perching on a tree, WTEs observe what cormorants are doing without interfering. When a cormorant catches a big fish one of the eagles flies to the cormorant with a menacing air. The cormorant cannot dive with the swallowed prey and has to regurgitate the fish. The eagle takes the 'tribute' calmly... Without a 'thank you'..."

http://www.naturelight.ru/show_photo/14553.html 'Sideview'
http://www.naturelight.ru/show_photo/14554.html 'A Warm Company'
Date: Feb 16, 2008. Location: Russia, Far East, Vladivostok, Golden Horn Bay.
Comments to both pics: In the winter, there are many WTEs in the city. They stay mainly on the ice, sometimes on trees, too. At times, up to ten birds can be seen in one place.
