Observations from 1998 - 2006 on the breeding population of Sooty Falcons Falco concolor on the Hawar Islands, Kingdom of Bahrain.
Kavanagh, Brendan P; King, Howard
<p>The original article is available at <a href="http://www.osme.org/">http://www.osme.org/</a></p> <p><strong>The breeding population of Sooty Falcons was observed on the Hawar </strong><strong>islands from 1998-2006. The number of breeding pairs and the total productivity </strong><strong>of the population were recorded annually. The population declined by </strong><strong>33% during that period, from 15 to 10 breeding pairs. The annual productivity </strong><strong>fluctuated between 0.92 and 1.33 chicks per pair, but without any </strong><strong>apparent trend. These figures are below the mean recorded in other </strong><strong>populations. A recent review of the literature would indicate that the world </strong><strong>population of this species has been seriously overestimated and further </strong><strong>research is needed as a matter of urgency.</strong></p>
