    In my late parents and I found the first confirmed Booted Eagle nest in the southern hemisphere. We at first thought that this was probably just an aberrant occurrence. However within a few years, and after much searching, we discovered that Booted Eagles were widespread and . CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Booted Eagles Aquila pennatus minisculus are classified as Endangered in Namibia because of their small population and unique subspecies status, but their breeding population is poorly known. We checked the Brukkaros crater in southern Namibia in July for Booted Eagles to determine any evidence of breeding.

    The breeding population is between and pairs [5]. The numbers are stable, probably with a slight decrease because of the mass felling of old forests in Bulgaria in the last 10 years. During migration it is often found, especially along the Black Sea coast. Booted Eagle (distribution map). The American Eagle Foundation is the only organization in the United States still permitted by the USFWS to conduct captive Bald Eagle breeding and Hacking. It is truly a privilege and an honor to continue to contribute to the wild Bald Eagle population though this program.

    Spanish bird species; The booted eagle – s5 ,5 inches, wingspan 43 – 52 inches- is about as large as a common buzzard and is the smallest eagle found in Europe. An interesting fact about this bird of prey is that it occurs in two colour forms, a light and a dark morph.   The booted eagle is one of the smallest of all eagles and can be found from eastern Europe to Namibia depending on breed and time of year. Conservation status: of least concern.

Booted Eagle Migration Routes. In Spain the Booted Eagle is a migrant species except in the Balearic Islands, where it is resident. Booted Eagles spend 13% of their lives on migration, 42% at their breeding grounds in Europe and 45% at their wintering quarters in Africa. The European population was estimated at 3, to 6, breeding pairs by BirdLife International/European Bird Census Council (), and this was later revised upward to 4, to 8, breeding pairs (BirdLife International ).

Data on the breeding range of Booted Eagles (Hieraaetus pennatus) were collected over 25 yr in the Northern, Western, and Eastern Cape Provinces, South Africa, to estimate the breeding population. Click here for more information about the Red List categories and criteria Justification of Red List category This species has an extremely large range, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion (extent of occurrence.

Population justification: The European population is estimated at 23, pairs, which equates to 46, mature individuals (BirdLife International ).Europe forms approximately 31% of the global range, so a very preliminary estimate of the global population size ismature individuals, although further validation of this estimate is needed.

Booted Eagle breeds mainly in mountainous areas with forests and open lands. Forests may be broad-leaved or conifers, or both, or with palm or olive trees, particularly in Morocco. It also frequents flat lands, mountainous slopes or low hills.

The booted eagle (Hieraaetus pennatus, also classified as Aquila pennata) is a medium-sized mostly migratory bird of prey with a wide distribution in the Palearctic and southern Asia, wintering in the tropics of Africa and Asia, with a small, disjunct breeding population in south-western : Aves.

The booted eagle Hieraaetus pennatus is a poorly known and scarce raptor that breeds in Spain. In Doñana National Park (south‐west Spain) its population has increased from only six breeding pairs in the early s to about by: Summary 1.

The booted eagle Hiercaetuts peimatits is a poorly known and scarce raptor that breeds in Spain. In Dofiana National Park (south-west Spain) its population has increased from only six breeding pairs in the early s to about today.

In order to guide habitat management for this raptor in Dofiana National Park. dark through a whole range of intermediates. The Booted Eagle has two very distinct phases—a light and a dark. This dimorphism is exhibited by both sexes; breeding pairs frequently consist of one dark and one light and their offspring may be either light or dark.

According to some authors, glucose levels may depend on body mass (Polo,Totzke and Bairlein, ), which could explain why free-living nestlings of large species (Golden Eagle, Spanish Imperial Eagle) have lower concentrations than smaller ones (Booted Eagle, Egyptian Vulture).
