Nestling growth and development in the brown falcon, Falco berigora: an improved ageing formula and field-based method of sex determination

McDonald, Paul

Description

The accurate determination of nestling age and sex is an important tool for studies that examine life-history traits and ecological interactions. Despite the widespread distribution of the brown falcon, Falco berigora, in Australia, morphological criteria for sexing nestlings of this species have yet to be published and nestling development has not been intensively studied. While an ageing formula for the species exists, the small sample from which it was derived precluded appropriate...[Show more]
