We suggest that the island is an alternative breeding ground for the species during years of low prey abundance on the Labrador Peninsula.
We hypothesize that during years of low prey abundance on portions of the nearby Labrador Peninsula, many rough-legged hawks move southward to insular Newfoundland in search of breeding territories that support a higher abundance of prey.
Moreover, the separation of these invasions by five years is consistent with the hypothesis that numbers of rough-legged hawks seen in Newfoundland are related to the three- to five-year cycles of small mammal abundance on the Labrador Peninsula (Elton, 1942).
