[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
For the past 3 years, at the summer time every 5-7 days. I have been taking picture of nesting Sort-toed Eagle.
I would enter in a hiding place, at early morning before sunrise and leave an hour before sunset. The Sort-toe Eagle, are very suspicious, so it was important not disturb them while the nestling was still young, till he grow and leave the nest after seventy five days.
From this exercise I learned about the hunting habits of both parent's eagles and how they feed the nestling and his preparation for life as adult eagles.
