Eagles are majestic creatures. Not merely because of their looks, but they are also admired for their intelligence and incredible predatory skills. It is no surprise that they are symbols of entire nations and countries, appear on national emblems, coins, and works of art. If you have ever wondered about this grand animal’s journeys, scroll down below to read a fantastic story about how one man’s unexpected discovery sparked curiosity for many people.


What he discovered was a dead eagle with a tracking device around its neck. Upon close inspection, the man saw that the device had the owner’s email on it.


The tracking device has saved all the locations where the eagle has been. It turns out, scientists were doing an experiment where they attached GPS on supposedly twenty eagles and marked every place they visited in one year. The birds have crossed many countries, but, interestingly enough, it stayed clear of the sea.


The eagles have crossed many countries in the Middle East and, it's not sure why they avoided the Caspian as well as the Red Sea.


Researchers team called “British Birds” have tracked 16 Steppe eagles before and discovered that the longest daily flight distance among all tracked eagles was about 355km. They've also recorded that through a complete annual cycle, an eagle spends around 31.5 percent in the wintering area, 41.9 percent in the breeding area and the rest 26.6 percent on migration. The statistics, as well as the map, once again demonstrate that eagles are a continually moving and migrating creature that travels more in their lifetimes than you could ever imagine.
