New records and distribution extension of Buteogallus solitarius (aves: accipitridae) in Venezuela

Adrián Naveda-Rodrigues, Gabriela Lugo


The Solitary Eagle (Buteogallus solitarius) is a poorly known Neotropical raptor and many aspects of its natural history remain unknown. The species is often misidentified and confused with other congeners. In Venezuela, its occurrence, based on voucher specimen and photographic records, is restricted to the Cordillera de la Costa Central. Here we report on four new confirmed records of the Solitary Eagle in Venezuela. These records represent a distribution extension (>160 km) from its previously known geographic range within the country.
