Enough with the rarities...


Just for a change, the most common eagle that can be seen in Greece is the Short-toed Eagle (Circaetus gallicus) - Φιδαετός. Summer visitor, hundreds of pairs nesting all over the mainland and some of the islands, feeding mainly on snakes, lizards and small mammals. For the records, this photo was taken in Dadia Forest, where it is very common.
