Abstract The Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) is a top predator of upland ecosystems in the Greater Antilles. Little information exists on the ecology of the insular forms of this widely distributed species. We studied movements and resource use of the Red-tailed Hawk from 2000 to 2002 in the montane forests of northeastern Puerto Rico. We captured 32 and used 21 radio-marked Red-tailed Hawks to delineate home range, core area shifts, and macrohabitat use in the Luquillo Mountains. Red… Expand

Temporal and spatial stability of red-tailed hawk territories in the Luquillo Experimental Forest, Puerto Rico
--We mapped Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) territories in the Luquillo Experimental Forest (LEF) of Puerto Rico in ]998. We combined our ]998 data with that collected during previous studies ofExpand
Breeding Biology and Diet of Red-Tailed Hawks in Puerto Rico
TLDR
Populations in rain and cloud forests lived at higher densities than those in the dry and moist lowlands, but they had a lower reproductive success, and fledglings remained in their parents' territories for more prolonged periods in Puerto Rico. Expand
Abundance and demography of the Hawaiian hawk: Is delisting warranted?
To provide the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) with updated information on the Hawaiian hawk ('io, Buteo solitarius) for reconsideration of its current endangered status, we determinedExpand
Partial loss of red-tailed hawk territories to swainson's hawks: relations to habitat
TLDR
Analysis of the habitat relinquished by Red-tailed Hawks showed perch availability to be an important resource in the habitat relations of these species. Expand
Landscape Correlates of Reproductive Success for an Urban–Suburban Red-Tailed Hawk Population
TLDR
Higher productivity in high-density urban areas suggests that the urban red-tailed hawk may be a source, not a sink, population in the metropolitan Milwaukee area, and increased nesting on human-made structures in urban locations and enhanced reproductive success for these nests reinforce this hypothesis and suggest that red-tails hawks are adapting to this urban environment.

Ecology and Breeding Habits of the Savanna Hawk in the Llanos of Venezuela
TLDR
A 16-month study of the Savanna Hawk in the llanos of Venezuela examined a test of the hypotheses of Lack and Skutch, what breeding habits exist to help offset a low reproductive potential inherent with a clutch size of one, and how the timing and duration of breeding were related to rainfall and food resources.

Abstract The Luquillo Experimental Forest (LEF) located on the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico has a rich history of ecological research, including a variety of avian studies, and is one of the mostExpand

HOME RANGE AND HABITAT USE OF SUBURBAN RED-SHOULDERED HAWKS IN SOUTHWESTERN OHIO
TLDR
Most Red-shouldered Hawks used riparian zones and pond edges more than expected, based on availability of such habitats within their home ranges; residential areas and lawns were used less than expected or in proportion to their availability. Expand
