A description of nests and behavior of the Gray-headed Kite.

Grey-headed Kite (Leptodon cayanensis) Science Article 1


The Gray-headed Kite (Leptodon cayanensis), a little-known Neotropical raptor (Blake 1977, Brown and Amadon 1989, de1 Hoyo et al. 1994); occurs in lowland tropical forests from central-eastern Mexico to northern Argentina (Brown and Amadon 1989). Only one nest and two clutches of the species have been described (de1 Hoyo et al. 1994). Here, I describe three nesting attempts, one egg, and behavior of Gray-headed Kites in Tikal National Park, Guatemala during 1991 and 1993.
