Diet and Foraging Behavior of Nesting Roadside Hawks inPete

Roadside Hawk (Buteo magnirostris) Science Article 1 abstract In 1993 and 1994, we collected dataon the diet and foraging behavior of Roadside Hawks(Buteo magnirostris) in primary tropical forest withslash-and-burn farming landscape nearby. We identified140 prey items brought to nests: 90 in the farminglandscape and 50 in the forest. Reptiles (57.1%, mostlylizards) and amphibians (24.3%) were […]

The Complete Sequence of the Mitochondrial Genome of Buteo buteo (Aves, Accipitrid ) Indicates an Early Split in the Phylogeny of Raptors

Common Buzzard (Buteo buteo) Science Article 3 abstract The complete sequence of the mitochondrial (mt) genome of Buteo buteo was determined. Its gene content and nucleotide composition are typical for avian genomes. Due to expanded noncoding sequences, Buteo possesses the longest mt genome sequenced so far (18,674 bp). The gene order comprising the control region […]
