VERRAUX'S EAGLE in Eilot Mountains, ISRAEL

An adult VERREAUX'S EAGLE was seen this morning at 09:40 at the lower Eilat Mtns. The bird was seen soaring quite low and slowly moving north, probably searching for Hyrax. The Eagle was seen on the north side of the road, just above the oil tanks and first army base going up the Mtns road. The observation was very brief, only about 15 seconds, and as the the bird was located from a driving bus by the time we got on it it was already flying away.

Apparently there is an adult roaming the Mtns, as this is the 3rd time a Verreaux's Eagle is observed at the Mtns in the past 2 weeks (per Jonathan Meyrav)
