Is this a short toed eagle or NOT? ) (1 Viewer)

So... how do I distinguish between the two, for later reference?
STE usually has no strong contrast on the underside, other than a darker head and/or bib occasionally. It also has a relatively short tail and broad wings. Booted Eagle has intermediate proportions, compared to other eagles.

Alternatively, posting more than one pic of a bird would greatly increase your chance to get a solid ID.

Oh, and does anybody know how to change or delete an image I posted on our gallery? I would like to change it to read booted eagle instead of STE...

when you click the image to view it large size, scroll down and you should see an option called edit. There you can do both.
