Spotted eagles tracked from Germany on migration to Africa
Spotted eagles fitted with satellite transmitters
September 2013. Twelve Spotted eagles, fitted with GPS transmitters in Germany, are being tracked on their migration to Africa.
Only about 100 pairs of rare Spotted eagles breed in Germany, and this number is declining every year. For years Germany’s Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union (NABU) has been fighting to save the last habitats of this elusive bird of prey; buying the land where they breed and protecting its feeding areas. Nevertheless they are threatened whilst on migration, particularly by hunters, and many young birds die before they mature and return to their German breeding grounds.
Help NABU protect the spotted eagle with a donation.
To investigate the migratory behaviour, the 30 gram backpack transmitters were mounted on the back of the spotted eagles; they report regularly the exact position, altitude and speed of the eagles.

Really nice post! I loved every second of it. A classic. Thanks for posting.
Thanks! I hope there will be more posts like this on this blog 🙂
Oh my, I do so hope efforts to keep this bird from extinction are successful. The loss of habitats is a growing problem all over the world. Blessings, Natalie
So do I 🙂 I hope the shooting of migrating birds in places like Malta will stop.
