Satellite-tagged Spanish Imperial Eagle (Aquila adalberti) at Guelmim, Morocco

A Spanish Imperial Eagle (Aquila adalberti ) with a satellite transmitter on its back photographed by Rachid El Khamlichi a few days ago in the region of Guelmim, southern Morocco. The bird observed also by Daniel Buron, Alfonso Godino, Catarina Machado and Jose Rafael Garrido who visited the region together. It’s probably one of the Spanish Imperial Eagles tracked by GPS-GSM transmitters from Andalusia (Spain) in 2015 and most of them crossed to Morocco. If indeed was one of these Andalusian eagles (because there are other birds tracked in other regions such as in Castilla–La Mancha), then it spent so far a good amount of time in Morocco.

In November 2015, Ali Irizi photographed (and videoed ) an untagged Spanish Imperial Eagle in the same region.
