Circaetus gallicus gallery on

Several photos made by Tomi Muukkonen in Israel and in Spain during the season 2007 are put on the website. Images of flying young, immature and adult Short-toed Eagles come under our notice because of well recognizable age characters of the plumage.


A few Russian texts

Here we present three different authors’ texts dedicated to Short-toed Eagles of three different regions: Crimea, Belarus and Turkmenistan. They are extracts

…from S.A. Bukreev’s book (Ru):
• Букреев С.А., 1997 – Орнитогеография и заповедное дело Туркменистана [Ornithogeography and reserve management of Turkmenistan] – М.: Центр охраны дикой природы (Biodiversity Conservation Center), 159 с.

…from Y.V. Kostin’s book (Ru):
• Костин Ю.В., 1983 – Птицы Крыма [Birds of Crimea] – М.: Наука, 240 с. /map/.

…and from V.V. Ivanovski’s work (Ru):
• Ивановский В.В., 1992 – Трофические связи редких хищных птиц Белорусского Поозерья [Food chains of rare birds of prey of Belarussian Poozer’e] // Оттиск, №173, 66 с. /map/.


Who also paints S.t.Eagles?

A Short-toed Eagle painted on it’s underwing coverts with red, was seen in Jibraltar this Autumn. No one declared doing such thing and it could be someone not a researcher who has done this marking. At beginning we suspected it is one of mine, but later and after describing the marking seen, i understood it is not one of mine, and possibly not of a researcher because the mark was a huge mark with no coding method.

If anyone knows something about that please contact me at:

my previous mail ( is not longer active.

The subject of the post is one more compilation of Short-toed Eagles photos selections. See it below:

The images are not big, but the bodies positions and some aspects seem quite unusual.
