Eastern Imperial Eagle

The Eastern Imperial Eagle is back! Same bird same tree as last year.

Also, and exciting for me as it is a Nir Oz patch tick, was a Mistle Thrush this morning. These are rare winter visitors and great to see.

Other stuff from the last few days - a stunning pale morph Buzzard near Sde Boker,

quite the best dressed Northern Wheatear I've ever seen (Urim fields),

a late juv Red-backed Shrike by the Nir Oz horse paddock.

a Long-eared Owl in the tree just outside the house,

and Lapwings. I love Lapwings for their colours, calls and being harbingers of winter (cool rains, great birds).
