Who also paints S.t.Eagles?

Oct 29, 2007 / 2 Comments

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.

Best regards

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.
