Spanish Imperial Eagle
The Spanish Imperial Eagle, Iberian Imperial Eagle or Adalbert's Eagle, (Aquila adalberti), is closely related to the Eastern Imperial Eagle (Aquila heliaca). It occurs only in South and West of Spain, Portugal and possibly northern Morocco.
The Spanish Imperial Eagle is smaller, 2.5-3.5 kg (5.5-7.7 lbs) and 75-84 cm (30-33 in) long, and darker than its oriental cousin, and it is a resident species (A. heliaca migrated to SE during winter). This eagle feeds mainly on rabbits, but it can predate over many other animals, like rodents, hares, pigeons, crows, ducks and foxes. The species is classified as Vulnerable. Threats include loss of habitat and illegal poisoning. There has also been a decline in the Spanish rabbit population, as a result of myxomatosis and other viral illnesses. The current population is estimated at less than 500.
