Yet another fulvescens on Biebrza
Today a Spotted Eagle of the pale form, so-called fulvescens, was observed on the Biebrza Marshes. The eagle, with some features pointing towards the Greater Spotted Eagle, was soaring accompanied by a Common Buzzard Buteo buteo and chasing him Lesser Spotted Eagle Aquila pomarina, all taking advantage of the sunny weather.
It is the second observation of this form of the Spotted Eagle in recent years. The last record comes from summer of 2011.
A book on the Greater Spotted Eagle
The last step of the ending Greater Spotted Eagle project is the publication of a book which has just seen the daylight. It's entitled "The Greater Spotted Eagle - Vanishing Bird of the Marshes" and was written by world's experts on the field: Dr. Grzegorz Maciorowski, Jan Lontkowski and Dr. Tadeusz Mizera. The book contains comprehensive knowledge on the species' distribution and biology in Polandand compares this knowledge with the results of the research performed on Greater Spotted Eagles in other countries. The advantage of the publication is undoubtedly it's multilingual form - the book contains full translations from the Polish language into both English and Russian.
The "Aquila" company contributed to this publiction by translating parts of the text free of charge and delivering many photographs, including the cover one.

There are no translations available.
Dziś w warszawskim kinie Praha odbyła się premiera filmu o orliku grubodziobym w reżyserii Ireneusza Chojnackiego. Film ten jest częścią kończącego się projektu LIFE dotyczącego ochrony tego gatunku w Polsce i przybliża nie tylko samego orła, ale również osobę dr. Grzegorza Maciorowskiego, który swoje życie poświęcił badaniom i ochronie tego najrzadszego ptaka szponiastego współczesnej Europy. To dzięki niemu oraz innym ekspertom z Komitetu Ochrony Orłów orlik grubodzioby stał się obecnie najlepiej poznanym gatunkiem orła w tej części naszej planety. Realizacją filmu zajęła się firma "Felis Film", produkcją zaś firma "Mamfilm".
2013 Migration Started
This year's autumn journey of Greater Spotted Eagles towards the wintering grounds has begun. The example came from the distant eastern pine coniferous forests where we tagged a juvenile female with a datalogger of our production. The bird was named Zawa by the scientific team of Mr. Igor Karyakin. Zawa stayed in the vicinity of the nest untill September 8th when she started her migration. At the moment she crosses Kazakhstan.
Also we start the presentation of all equipped with our dataloggers Greater Spotted Eagles' autumn migrations. It will be presented in the "Greater Spotted Eagle - Migration - 2013 Migration Map" menu.
Alek is alive!
We received a very happy news right before the Clanga Day which we celebrate on 08 September from a Biebrza National Park employee. On Saturday on the Biebrza Marshes she observed soaring Alek, born last year on Biebrza Greater Spotted Eagle which we were lucky to observe last winter in Greece. Alek is fitted with a datalogger which stopped working at the beggining of the year. It turned out the device is still on his back and the eagle is fine. Let's hope one day he will have a family on his own and will raise his own offsprings on Biebrza.
We would like to thank Mrs. Agnieszka Henel for the news.
