Quick update – I’ve been off-line for a while (computer issues). It’s been a quiet summer for me so far until news broke that Olga Chagina had found Israel's 6th Tawny Eagle (3 CY) near Tze’elim. This one proved twitchable and deservedly popular although I managed to dip on my first attempt at it. Watched it for about an hour on Sunday while Amir Balaban made a video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFoudYpOW3c). Amazing views. The following day I returned and joined the cars parked around the eagle tree. For a while it sat there not doing much at all, just staring southwards then suddenly . . . .
What a stunning bird!
