Ridgway's Hawk

Hi everybody,
I don't want to start all over the discussion about Buteos being hawks or not, I just want to invite you to see our short segment of the Ridgway's hawk we produced for the National Geographic's Wild Chronicles program. It's the rarest Buteo worldwide. An extended video (30 mins.) we filmed during 18 months with great footage of nest behavior will be ready in January.

Ridgeway's Hawk

Thanks for making that posting, Jurgen. I had just recently found a Lance's work with the hawk, because I was researching banding projects in the region. Very good to have that species get some attention, I never knew it was so critically endangered.

Yours,
Peter C.

Unfortunately Lance is leaving to Madagascar but the Hispaniolan Ornithological Society (www.soh.org.do) is carrying out an extensive conservation project with the hawk funded by the Peregrine Fund. As all remaining hawks live in only one (more or less) protected area 4 hatchlings have been relocated recently to a neighboring save area without problems. Thanks for your interest, Jurgen
