Regarding the COLUMBIDAE
family the main distinction that can be observed is the fact that there seems to have been some shifts in the denominations both for the generic and the gender specific terms as well as for the young one.
It was possible to make a general identification of nine of the prey items: eight were small birds, probably Columbidae
, and one was a mammal, probably a young armadillo.
