Illegal logging and animal grazing through forests are the main threatening factors in the breeding period for the Lesser Spotted Eagle. The data gathered during several field trips showed that from 18 nesting sites – chicks were observed in four of them, nine pairs have not nested at all and five pairs nested unsuccessfully due to unknown causes. The nests were checked in summer. Their monitoring takes place every year to get as much information about the population of Lesser Spotted eagles in the area. The action is part of the continuing activities of the “Conservation of the Lesser Spotted Eagle in Romania” LIFE08 NAT/RO/000501 project, implemented between 2010 – 2013 by the Sibiu Environmental Agency, Milvus Group and the Romanian Ornithological Society.
