Description


From my upcoming "Birds of Prey v6: Eagles of the World2" .... This eagle can be found in southwestern Greenland, western Iceland, northern and central Eurasia south to Greece and Turkey, the southern Caspian Sea, Lake Balkhash and northeastern China. Its former range spread to lower the Yangtze River and very likely in to Egypt. It has bred on Attu Island (Western Aleutian Islands). It winters southward to the northern coast of the Mediterranean Sea, Israel, the Persian Gulf, Pakistan, northern India, northern Myanmar and southeastern China. It lives in diverse aquatic habitats, both freshwater and marine including coasts, rocky islands, lakes, large rivers and large marshes. It can be found from desert to Arctic biomes. It feeds on a wide range of food types, including fish, small birds and, less often, mammals. Males and females are alike, however females are up to 25% larger than the males. The size difference in the sexes helps avoid hunting overlaps. Threats that affect this species include loss and degradation of wetlands, human disturbance and persecution, environmental pollution, collision with wind generators, and indiscriminate use of poisons. Modern forestry methods reduce the availability of suitable nesting habitat. Accidental lead poisoning from spent ammunition remains a considerable source of mortality in Finland.

An excellent render and thank you for the informative summary. May I please ask, however, what are "hunting overlaps?" And, frankly, why is it best to avoid them? Thank you very much.

"Hunting Overlaps"... The female, being larger, will go after larger prey, while the male. who is smaller. goes after much smaller prey. This size difference makes it less likely their hunting area will be over hunted by the pair.
