Golden Eagles ringed

In the middle of June has finished the ringing season of Golden Eagle chicks. During the breeding season we verified 13 pairs of eagles in the V and SV part of Romania. A total of 5 chicks were ringed, 4 of them with colored rings. The action was part of the project “Partnership for the Conservation of flagship raptors in the South Western Carpathians” financed by the Environmental Partnership Foundation from Miercurea Ciuc and by the Royal Netherlands Embassy from Romania.
