The Tocantins-Araguaia Basin as a migratory route and a wintering area of Falco peregrinus (Aves, Falconidae)

Túlio Dornas, Willian Menq, Tiago Junqueira, Estevão F. Santos


The Peregrine Falco peregrinus, is an Nearctic migrant to Brazil where its status in central Brazil is still poorly known. Herein we present a compilation of records of the species from the state of Tocantins and comment on its use of a wintering site in the state of Goiás. These records show that the Tocantins-Araguaia River Basin is a migration route for the species, and therefore a mid-continental migration route through the interior of South America.
