Respondents who have seen eagles near their homes considered the golden eagle endangered much more frequently than the white-tailed eagle. As compared to other respondents, they noticeably more often classified the osprey and the spotted eagle among the most threatened species. Similar tendencies could also be noticed in the survey conducted in 2004.
By regions, the most daring bird-determiners were the respondents in South and Middle Estonia, while those of Tallinn and East-Viru County were the most modest ones, similarly to 2004.
•The proportion of those respondents who have had personal contacts with a black stork or eagle is small and almost the same as it was in 2004. 80% of the respondents have not seen eagles in their immediate vicinity, 72% have not seen a black stork. Only a very low percentage of the population is aware of a nesting spot. 38% of the land owners nevertheless have some contact with the black stork. 27% of the land owners know that there are eagles nesting in their immediate vicinity. In both cases, 1% of the land owners are aware that there are nests on their lands.
•The respondents who have seen the named birds in their surroundings were asked how they would feel towards creating a protected area for these species on their lands. 36% of such respondents would unconditionally consent to the protected area, 26% on certain conditions. 8% were clearly opposed to it and 30% could not form an opinion on that matter. The main conditions were that the protected area would not hinder the owner’s economic activities. The responses differed from the results of 2004 by only a few per cent.
