FACTS ABOUT EAGLES
In the region around Lake
Hornborga both white-tailed eagle and golden eagle winter, mostly young birds.
The eagles are fed
with meat inspected by veterinary surgeons, and every winter the eagles are given about
three tons of food.
The food is spread after dark in order
to minimize disturbances.
At present the feeding-place is run by
voluntary manpower from the Club an in cooperation with a project, called "Eagle
72", and "Länsstyrelsen".
The feeding-place at
"Vadboden" is near the Church of Bjurum at Road Nr 184 between Skara and Falköping
and can be observed at a comfortable distance from the information building, called
Naturum, at "Rastplats Trandansen".
Other species of birds that can be seen are raven, hooded crow, magpie, jackdaw, goshawk,
buzzard, rough-legged buzzard, great tit and others.
