Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Remains of a Black Falcon Falco subniger wing, among superficially similar wing remains of Australian Ravens Corvus coronoides, were found as prey at a Peregrine Falcon F. peregrinus eyrie in December 2006 at high altitude near Canberra, Australian Capital Territory. This item was among other large, dangerous prey items taken by Peregrine Falcons at this altitude and habitat, where small prey species are less available.
