ABsTBAcT.-Sex-biased natal dispersal is common among many bird species, with females usually dispersing farthest. The relative dispersal distances of male and female American Kestrels (F&o sparven’ us) are unknown. We examined natal dispersal in Southeastern American Kestrels (F. s. paulus) in north-central Florida, observing birds marked as nestlings with either color bands or patagial tags. Natal dispersal distances of 34 kestrels ranged from 0.0 to 38.8 km. Mean natal dispersal distance of… CONTINUE READING
