The age of this golden eagle should be more than 3 years, light tail feathers with a dark tip are visible, a lighter head plumage is shaping up


Golden eagle     Kaljukotkas or maakotkas    Aquila chrysaetos


The large, impressive and ancient birds mostly use a pine as nesting tree. Breeding adults can be counted as non-migratory birds. Some of the young birds have gone roving and some have arrived here from the north. Altogether there are less than a couple of hundred individuals in winter here. Foraging is often done at a distance from the breeding territory, in remote marsh, bog or forest areas.

Worthwhile checking your vegetable beds once more!

Carrot harvest  29.12.2017

In August I got no carrots for my soup from this bed, they were so tiny. Four months more of growing time and what a harvest.

Kristel harvested turnips too today from her Tartu city garden, in addition to the carrots. In the soil spiders moved around…

The Conservation Biology Working Group at the University of Tartu commemorates the ending year with an  image series on a forest theme, where our people introduce different views of what a forest actually can be that have caused polemics this year.

As believers in diversity we hope that everyone will have a personal favourite in the series  and that different comprehensions of the essence of a forest can have their space in Estonian nature, society and official statistics.

In case the image series will not open from the link above it is  at: https://arme.ee/mets/
