Greater Spotted Eagle / Större Skrikörn

One of Europe’s most Endangered Raptors. Some individuals can be found in Estonia. Main cause for the decline is habitat loss and hybridization with the Lesser Spooted Eagle , that is very similar. There will be a longer narrative of this iconic bird later on.
