Lesser Spotted Eagles - Latvijas Dabas fonds ligzda bērzā 2019

Post by Felis silvestris » March 31st, 2019, 1:12 pm

Lesser Spotted Eagle (Clanga pomarina) nest in Zemgalē, Latvia

The eagle nest in Zemgalē is known since July 2017. It is built on birch at a height of about 20 meters. Judging by the nest material, the nest is at least five years old (the lower parts are already partially broken). The online camera system is at this location since spring 2018.
A pair of LSE stayed in the nest, but did not breed.
Jānis Ķuze and Jānis Rudzītis placed the camera system at this nest, and Valdis Lukyanovs and Ģirts Strazdiņš also help to maintain it.
