What is the life of lesser spotted eagle like? What does it eat? How does it behave while nesting? Webcams are a tool that allows to follow the life of birds very closely. The obtained information can be useful for researchers in order to understand better the behaviour and habit of birds.
Therefore we have installed two webcams at lesser spotted eagle nests in Latvia. The first broadcasting season was in 2018.
One camera is located in a spruce in Zemgale region. In this nest a young bird was observed in summer of 2018. The construction of the nest allows to asume that this nesting place has been used by lesser spotted eagles already for some time.
The other nest that is broadcasted by webcam is location in birch tree in Zemgale region. The nest is known since July 2017 when there was observed one young bird. It is located in a birch tree approximately 20 meters from ground. The nest could be at least 5 years old.
In 2018 the nesting did not happen. In the spruce nest the eagle was observed several times, the birch nest was more often inhibited – several birds were observed there during spring, later a pair of eagles spent there some more time and even decorated the nest with spruce and pine needles. The pair was observed in the nest up until August.
In 2019 the broadcasting was resumed in March.
