Inter- and intraspecific variation of breeding biology, movements, and genotype in Peregrine Falcon Falco peregrinus and Gyrfalcon F. rusticolus populations in Greenland

Abstract:

Peregrines Falco peregrinus and Gyrfalcons F. rusticolus were studied in Low and High Arctic Greenland, comparing populations within and between areas. Analyses of weather data from northwest Greenland (1979–2005) revealed a general warming trend, resulting in a lengthened breeding window for many bird species. Both falcon species depend on cliffs for nesting, and take a similar range of bird species as prey. However, Gyrfalcons lay six weeks earlier than Peregrines in Ka...
