Notes

Abstract: Kites of the genus Elanus are found throughout the world principally in open areas such as grasslands, sparse shrublands, and agricultural fields (Brown and Amadon 1968). Because of their characteristic hover-hunting, and their widespread distribution, these kites make interesting subjects for analyses of their hunting behavior. Such studies have been conducted in several regions, including North America (Waian and Stendall 1970, Warner and Rudd 1974, Koplin et al. 1980), Europe (Amat 1979, Heredia 1983), Africa (Tarboton 1978, Mendelsohn 1982), and Australia (Baker-Gabb 1984). However, quantitative information on the hunting behavior of South American kites was nonexistent until now, and is reported here from a locality in central Chile.
