Habitat use, temporal activity patterns and foraging behaviour of raptors in the south-west of the Northern Territory, Australia

Wildlife Research 28(4) 365 - 378
Published: 15 November 2001


On the basis of opportunistic observations, the preferred habitats of diurnal raptors in the south-west of the Northern Territory are quantified in terms of their vegetation structures and composition, and linked with foraging methods and information on local diets. Broad interspecific differences in diel activity patterns are also described. The evidence suggests that raptor species in this part of arid Australia differ with respect to their foraging times, habitats and methods, and that these differences relate to their partitioning of food resources.
