Energetic expenditure of male Ospreys provisioning natural and manipulated broods.

Western Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) Science Article 2 abstract This study examined the relationship between brood size and energetic expenditure of male Ospreys. The daily energetic expenditure (DEE) of male Ospreys, provisioning nestlings and providing post-fledging parental care, was estimated using detailed time-energy budgets. Factors affecting DEE were investigated, and DEE and the maximum rate of […]

Courtship Feeding And Osprey Reproduction

Western Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) Science Article 1 abstract A female Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) usually is fed exclusively by its mate between pair formation and egg-laying. Laying dates and courtship periods, but not clutch size, egg size, breeding success or female weight reserves, were correlated (negatively) with the prelaying feeding rates of 12 females breeding in […]

The occurrence of fault bars in the plumage of nestling Ospreys.

Western Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) Science Article 3 abstract We document the occurrence of fault bars in a population of nestling Ospreys Pandion haliaetus under natural conditions. Ospreys had an average of 9.9 fault bars on their rectrices, however variation was large. Fault bar formation declined linearly with age and increased symmetrically from outer to inner […]

Variation in the quality of parental care at falcon nests in South Africa as evidence for postulated differences in food availabi lity.

Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus) Science Article 1 abstract Parental care by Peregrine Falcons Falco peregrinus an d Lanner Falcons F. biarmicus during the nestling period was studied in two areas of South Africa. Comparisons were made between the quality of care administered to broods of Peregrine Falcons at nests in tropical (the Soutpansberg) an d […]

Identification of natal locales of peregrine falcons (falco peregrinus) by trace-element analysis of feathers

Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus) Science Article 12 abstract Samples of secondary remiges collected from nestling Peregrine Falcons (Falco peregrinus) in Alaska and western Greenland were analyzed for trace-element content using instrumental neutron-activation analysis. Concentrations of 14 trace elements were subjected to a series of multivariate discriminant function analyses to ascertain whether or not these concentrations […]

Kleptoparasitism by Peregrine Falcons on Carrion Crows

Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus) Science Article 4 abstract […]. The study area was Bizkaia, a small province of 2300 km2 located in the north of Spain. In this area we have monitored about 35-38 Peregrine territories since 1997. During this time we have studied the prey of Peregrines in the nests, recording 931 prey of […]

Genetic relationships in the peregrine falcon (Falcoperegrinus) analysed by microsatellite DNA markers

Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus) Science Article 10 abstract Microsatellite DNA markers were developed from a peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus)and genetic relationships among peregrine falcons in southern Norway were analysedusing the markers. The genomic DNA library was screened for the presence of dinucleotidemicrosatellite repeats. Twelve loci revealed polymorphism through the initial analysis of24 unrelated peregrine falcons, […]

Gliding flight: speed and acceleration of ideal falcons during diving and pull out

Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus) Science Article 8 abstract Some falcons, such as peregrines (Falco peregrinus), attack their prey in the air at the end of high-speed dives and are thought to be the fastest of animals. Estimates of their top speed in a dive range up to 157ms?1, although speeds this high have never been […]

Nest-site overlap and coexistence between Bonelli’s Eagle (Hiera tus fasciatus) and Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus) in an area of simpatry.

Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus) Science Article 2 abstract Nest-site selection has been compared between the populations of Bonellis Eagle (29 pairs) and Peregrine Falcon (35 pairs) in an area of simpatry in Southeastern Spain (Granada province). 18 variables evaluating habitat humanisation, physiography, intraspecific and interspecific distances and vegetation (Appendix 1) were compared between both species […]
