Committee's view
Background
No descriptions provided in SINAV 18:4. Wang & Hails (2007) lists the first date as 11 November while Lim (2009) lists it as 12 November. The date listed on SINAV 18:4 is 12 November, which is incorrect. Checking the YahooGroup Archives shows that the primary observer, Lim Kim Chuah, shared the sighting on the morning of 12 November saying that he saw it "yesterday". The descriptions provided are reproduced here: "Features noted were whitish underparts with pale streakings, broad wings with distinctive dark tips. Long tail with dark narrow bands. A soaring Changeable Hawk-eagle provided an opportunity for comparison. Size-wise they are about the same. However Short-toed has noticeably longer tail.".
Vote results Against: 8
