Another subspecies of Short-toed Eagle determined

Nov 30, 2017 / Comment

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.

PELSY F. 2011-2013. Sologne

We would like to express our gratitude to Frédéric Pelsy for sharing these not numerous, but marvelous pictures of Short-toed Eagles in Sologne (France) /map/. The male and the females are well recognizable by colouration of their plumage which is seen in detail. Because of that several of the photos have also been added to our Age/Sex handbook.
