Eastern Imperial Eagle

One of the birds that that we had great views of in the last few weeks in Hungary was Eastern Imperial Eagle Aquila heliaca. I managed to show these magnificent birds of prey to my fellow birders at four different sites. Hungary has the strongest European population with over known 60 pairs dotted around the country but most are concentrated in the east. Hungarian conservationists have a EU sponsored project on the species currently running and have placed information boards for the general public in key roadside spots (see photo left).
