Heterogeneus use of space in three breeding territories of Bonelli’s Eagle (Hieraaetus fasciatus)

Bonellis Eagle (Aquila fasciata) Science Article 3


Radio-tracking of three breedingadults of Bonelli’s eagle in the ValencianRegion (Spain) was used to estimate their homerange sizes with the minimum convex polygonand Kernel estimator methods and identifytheir core ranges with the last one method.There was a considerable variability in the sizeand shape between the three territories, andthe frequentation of different areas within them.These preliminary results may have implicationsin the habitat analysis of the speciesand its management.
