African Crowned Eagle

African Crowned Eagle

What a great raptor species this is!
In late 2018 we have worked quite hard on the last project of the year, our African Crowned Eagle project in cooperation with the Crowned Eagle Research team of the University of KwaZulu Natal/South Africa.
We’ve spent hours and hours, days and weeks portraying scientists conducting their research and ringing the 2018 newborn eagle generation. Apart from working on the scientific aspects of a highly interesting bird species that more and more gets adapted to urban environments, we have also worked on some cool and previously unseen aspects about this species.

That involved building tree-top hides in the vicinity of a very busy eagle mom, took some time to achieve close-up portraits of wild eagles, meant spending our evenings and nights in order to capture urban eagles downtown and also included some – at least for us – new ways of getting close to the ideal perspectives: tree climbing!
In order to document scientists working high up in the trees and mounting some wideangle DSLR nest cams we’ve covered some stretches of rope.

Well, for now we can only publish a few backstage images and first previews of what will come up next. So stay tuned for more insights about Crowned eagles to be released in the future!
