We had seven active golden eagle territory and a great spring, but got only a little one this year. If you want to be positive about it, that is at least one more than last year. There also seems to be the same tendency in the neighbouring counties, few kids was born. Maybe it's because poor prey availability.
On Friday it was time for ringing, I hope to return with information on the eagle's continuing adventures in the coming winter. The eagles we previously ringed usually show up on carrion in the neighbouring counties, where dedicated ornithologists studying them.
One does not like to shake hands with a golden eagle, not even with a small one, for the sharpness and power of the claws are impressive.
