Abstract

Long-term monitoring of the Imperial Eagle in Eastern Slovakia has revealed that some pairs living permanently in an active agricultural environment (agrocoenosis) prove capable of adapting even to extreme conditions. In three cases eagles built their nests near railway lines (59, 22 and 15 m from the tracks), and in one case almost directly above a frequently-used road at a height of 21m.
