This is a video from Spain on the Iberian imperial eagle.
The eagles have landed – online!
A new webcam trained on a family of Spanish Imperial Eagles Aquila adalberti will aid the Alzando el vuelo (Taking off) conservation programme. The camera will raise the project’s profile by affording web-surfers unique views of the mighty raptors.
The nest is located in the Cabañeros National Park (Spain), in the centre of the Iberian Peninsula, and is home to a pair of Spanish Imperial Eagles and their young chick. By entering the website people will be able to watch the birds 24 hours a day. Precautions were undertaken to ensure the pair were not disturbed during the cameras installation, and it is expected that the offspring will fledge around mid June.
The webcam is here.
March 2009. Despite being one of the most threatened species on the International Union for Nature Conservation (IUCN)’s red list, the Spanish imperial eagle (Aquila adalberti) is recovering in Spain. The species has undergone an increase from 38 pairs in 1974 to 253 in 2008, data viewed as hopeful by the scientists who carried out the demographic study on the Iberian Peninsula: here.
