According to Birdlife international the STEPPE EAGLE has undergone extremely rapid population declines within its European range. The majority of its range lies outside Europe where it was not thought to be declining but recent information suggests that the population outside Europe may be exposed to greater threats than was previously thought and has also undergone very rapid recent declines across much of the range. It is therefore classified as Endangered.

In Conversation – Rishad Naoroji

Rishad Naoroji is a renowned raptor biologist and conservationist. He is the author of the book Birds of Prey of the Indian Subcontinent, which was published in 2008. In an interview with Current Science, he talks about the challenges of studying raptors and on the mass killing of the Amur falcons in Nagaland in 2012.

What triggered your interest in studying raptors and when did it all begin?
My interest in wildlife started at a very young age. My first trip to a National Park was when I was 4 years old. At that age my interest was not restricted to one particular taxa or group of species. On my 18th birthday, my father gifted me with a life membership to the Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) where I frequently went to attend talks. But my interest in raptors began when I started to accompany scientists from BNHS on field trips. I was fascinated by them and began to read every bit of information I could get in the BNHS library. I later started to explore National Parks and other areas with scientists from BNHS, helping them capture birds to ring them.

On December 9th 2011 early morning, we came out for our usual round of weekend birding in our favourite birding spot HESARAGHATTA Grasslands situated on the outskirts of Bangaluru, south India. The day started in a pretty ordinary manner. Found a few Black and Brahminy Kites, juvenile White-eyed Buzzards, Tawny Eagles and Egyptian Vultures.
