Breeding of the Golden Eagle in the Polish part of the Sanocko-Turczanskie Mountains. - C. Cwikowski, G. Molodynski. - Berkut. 4 (1-2). 1995. P. 31-33.
The Sanocko-Turczanskie Mountains cover the area between the valleys of the San, the Dniester and the Stryj Rivers. They are the northernmost flexures of the East Carpathians. Breeding of the Golden Eagle is regarded as extremely rare in Poland. The number of nesting pairs is estimated to about ten. Most of the nests are situated in the Carpathians and in the Mazuria (NE Poland). For the first time immature and adult Golden Eagles was watched in the Sanocko-Turczanskie Mountains at the end of the 1980s. In 1993 three territories were found there. They were situated along a meridional transect at about 11 km intervals. Later two nests were discovered. In the Sanocko-Turczańskie Mountains domestic species (cats, chickens) make up relatively big proportion of the Golden Eagle diet. [English].
