Eastern Imperial and Greater Spotted Eagles - Ushaiqer

Whilst birding the Ushaiqer area northwest of Riyadh, where the worlds largest gathering of Steppe Eagles occurred this winter I also saw a few other eagles. They were very limited in numbers but I did see up to ten Eastern Imperial Eagles and four Greater Spotted Eagles during several trips to the location. The massive number of Steppe Eagles made it somewhat difficult to locate them but the small numbers suggest they are not common in the areas in the winter as surely they would have been feeding on the chicken waste otherwise.
