Man found dead eagle with tracking device that records every place the bird has visited in 1 year—turns out it has never flown across any sea!

Eagle conveys the powers and messages of the spirit; it is man’s connection to the divine because it flies higher than any other bird. If eagle has appeared, it bestows freedom and courage to look ahead. The eagle is symbolic of the importance of honesty and truthful principles.

Eagles do not mix with other birds but only enjoy flying at their high altitude. It is this characteristic that makes eagles unique birds. An eagle will never surrender to the size or strength of its prey. It will always give a fight to win its prey or regain its territory.

Eagles have powerful vision. If you ever see an eagle sitting high above on a cliff or atop a tree, watch closely and see how attentive the bird is. Eagles are fearless. An eagle will never surrender to its prey, no matter its strength or size.

Eagles are not only admired for their majestic appearance but their incredible endurance and predatory skills that are incomparable to any other birds. One man from Jizan region in Saudi Arabia found the remains of an eagle when he was out walking near a swamp.  The tracking device also came with the owner’s email on it which Fahd later found out that it was fitted in Kazakhstan. Apparently, the eagle was a part of a study conducted by a group of scientists whereby they attached twenty GPS on twenty eagles.

While the eagle has obviously flown to many countries, the map shows that it has always stayed clear of the sea and preferred to fly across the lands. A group of a research team called “British Birds” had previously tracked 16 Steppe eagles and found out that the longest distance of the birds’ daily flight was approximately 220 miles! They even found that an eagle spends around 31.5% of its time wintering, 41.9% in breeding area and the other 26.6% migrating from a country to another country. many eagle species fly much higher on their own—the bald eagle, for example, glides at altitudes of up to 10,000 feet.

While some people were cherished by the bird’s staying clear of waters, some people suggested that the reason an eagle prefers flying across the land is that they often soar on thermals when they fly long distances. As the lands heat up faster than the sea, they provide better thermal support for eagles to soar higher and fly further.

Surprised by the unusual thing, Fahd Qash further checked the dead eagle’s body and found a tracking device around its neck.

The GPS was fitted on each eagle to record every place the bird has visited in a year.

The eagle has traveled as far as Sudan and Yemen but never crossed the Caspian and the Red Sea as it migrated.

The statistics show that eagles are constantly moving from one place to another and never stay long in a particular area.
