The White-tailed Eagle is the largest predatory bird in Poland, listed in the Polish Red Book of Animals. Recording this bird has been one of my field recording dreams for months. Unfortunately, it’s difficult as the White-tailed Eagle is rare and only makes sounds in exceptional situations. I’ve managed to record it with the help of SASS a few days ago. Unfortunately, even in protected reserves, the tranquility of this magnificent bird can be disrupted by human activity. On the recording, you’ll hear the bird’s alarmed cry in response to the sound of gunshots during a hunting expedition.
