The excellent online database featherbase.info contains high resolution photos of bird feathers, various statistical data on their dimensions, useful comparing tools which allow to identify species with high confidence. Also, you can add pictures of your own finds there. Specific information on Short-toed Eagle is available on the separate page.

Quite many articles dedicated to Short-toed Eagle are reprsented on the ResearchGate and not yet described on our site. Currently, we’d like to mark one, which is very fresh, raising a topic of georgaphic variations at the farthest border of the species range /map/ and questioning again the concept of Circaetus gallicus as a monotypic species:
• Shengrong Nathaniel NG, Les CHRISTIDIS, Jerry OLSEN, Janette NORMAN, Frank E. RHEINDT, 2017 – A new subspecies of Short-toed Snake-eagle from Wallacea determined from morphological and DNA comparison // Zootaxa, Vol. 4358, No. 2: pp. 365–374. (En).
The abstract of the paper available now is of great interest itself.
This article mentioned here in 2006 is available online now:
The following two texts are dedicated to notable physical abilities of Short-toed Eagles and, like the previous one of Bernard Joubert, are going to be included in the next issue of La Plume du Circaète (Fr):
