I’ve just published another great interview on europeanraptors.org, this time with Konstantin Pismennyi about the amazing Short-toed Eagle.
Konstantin, a great expert on the Short-toed Eagle, explains a lot about the biology and conservation of the species, for example why the Short-toed Eagle only lays one egg and how important Snakes are for the species.

Konstantin also explains the idea behind the Website HoverOverUs – short-toed-eagle.net, a great website and resource dedicated to the Short-toed Eagle. Websites are a great way to inform the public about a raptor species and to bring together experts who work for it’s conservation.
Make sure to visit HoverOverUs – short-toed-eagle.net.
