Out of Arabia

by B. Meyburg, A. Spalton, F. Al Lamki, M. McGrady

The last of the Steppe eagles that we have been tracking over this winter has finally left Arabia and is in southern Iran, about 130 km NE of Bandar Mahshahr.  183 spent its winter at the central Saudi Arabian dump site where more than 6000 other eagles overwintered.  Look back at post from 22 November 2019.  183 is a 5 year male that spent last summer in western Kazakhstan.  We expect it will go there again this year. 

Of course, the Steppe eagle is the focus of the Champions of the Flyway initiative.  Good luck to those participating in the event and to the eagles.

Be healthy, people.
