‘Booted Eagle’ Hide
In Mallorca and in some areas of the Southeast of the Iberian Peninsula, there are Booted Eagles (Hieraaetus pennatus) all year round, while in other parts of the country they are summer migrants only. The population of these birds has increased in recent years and it is now possible to photograph them in their natural habitat from our specific hide.
The hide is made of wood and vegetation cover, equipped with a spy glass, and has a capacity for 2 people. Sessions take place in the morning, entering between 9am and 11am, depending on the time of year, and last for about 3 hours.
It is usual that, in less than an hour, the eagle comes to the bait and remains feeding on the perch for more than 1 hour, which is located 17 meters in front of the hide.
< p>With good weather conditions, success is practically guaranteed. In case the eagle does not appear, another date is offered, and if it is not possible, the session has no cost.
The hide has authorization from the Department of Environment and Territory and is available throughout the year.
After welcoming the observers to the estate, a transfer with one of our vehicles will take them to the hide door, and entrance must be as quick as possible. At the end of the session, the same vehicle will return at the agreed time for the pickup. If the session finishes earlier than planned, our staff can be contacted by phone.
