Local Time:

You are watching a live broadcast of a Booted Eagle Nesting. This nest is located in Parque Natural de los Puertos, Spain. Nesting starts at the begining of April every year. For more information about the eagles, this camera or the park, please visit aquilapennatapnports.wordpress.com

The Booted Eagle is a medium-sized mostly migratory bird of prey located in the Palearctic and southern Asia, wintering in the tropics of Africa, Asia and south-western Africa. Booted Eagles lay 1–2 eggs in a nest built from sticks and lined with leaves in the fork of a tree or on a crag, or they can take over an abandoned nest of another large bird such as a black kite or grey heron. The female incubates the egg for around 45 days and is fed by the male, after hatching she guards the nest and the young while the male provides all the food. The chicks fledge after 70–75 days.

Hatch watch begins June 3rd 2022.
