The Long-crested Eagle has a wide distribution throughout much of the African continent. They currently live successfully in many different habitats, including natural and man-made, such as plantations. According to a paper released in 2022 by the Peregrine Fund, this relatively small Eagle, which is thought of as one of Kenya’s most iconic raptors, has declined in numbers by 94 percent over the past 40 years. The decline is due to collisions with electrical infrastructure and cars, electrocutions, habitat fragmentation, habitat loss or deliberate, or incidental poisoning. All of these issues are things that can be fairly easily addressed with some effort.
