4Eagles Meadow Hide

“4Eagles Meadow Hide” is ready for action in an exciting new location. There is only one perch so far, where the birds of prey and corvids are expected to sit on and can be photographed. The hide is near a lagoon. Therefore, the background in the main direction is the tree line and endless pastures in the rest of directions. The hide is above the ground. However, we built it so you can choose a low or a higher angle. As a result, we can photograph comfortably from the horizontal level, sitting on an office chair, or use a mattress or a yoga pad to get the perfect low angle shots. Bird activity is extremely inconstant. It is monitored at least once a week. However, we expecting top results from October till the end of March. The short activity period is weather dependent. There is less movement in rainy, windy, or extremely cold (-20˚C) conditions. The hide is available only for a full day from dawn to dusk. In winter, there is a feeding station for the wintering birds, so the hide can be used as well.
