Notwithstanding this prevalence, little is known about the stress response in raptorial birds
To investigate the effects of handling stress on physiologic parameters in raptorial birds
, 8 red-tailed hawks (Buteo jamaicensis) were manually restrained over a 15-minute period.
Abstract: Behavioral ecology of red-tailed hawks, rough-legged hawks, harriers, Kestrels, and other raptorial birds
wintering in south central Ohio.
bennettii is a relative big abrocomidae rodent (>80 g) being eaten in central Chile by raptorial birds
such as Athene cunicularia and carnivores such as Lycalopex culpaeus (Meserve et al.
Also, the known locations for the species are inside a sanctuary for raptorial birds
, the Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area.
Mammal remains from cast pellets of raptorial birds

Most research evaluating avian GI transit times has involved psittacine species, with little focus on raptorial birds
Woody plants are important for a diversity of bird species as they provide food, cover, sites for nesting, roosting, perching, and observation posts for raptorial birds
(Dean et al.
The benefits are illustrated in two papers reporting the generally demanding census of raptorial birds
