|Title:||Supplementary notes on the breeding behaviour of Wedge-tailed Eagles 'Aquila audax'||Contributor(s):||Cherriman, Simon C (author); Foster, Adam (author); Debus, Stephen JS (author)||Publication Date:||2009||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/4880||Abstract:||Aspects of territorial and courtship displays, breeding behaviour, nest defence and reaction to human disturbance are described for the Wedge-tailed Eagle 'Aquila audax' in parts of southern Australia. Included are a description of a display by a pair that flagged the site of a future nest, and an account of nest abandonment after a focal dead tree in the nesting territory, near the nest-tree, was removed. The latter incident suggests that such focal perching trees, in addition to the nest-tree, might be a component of territory quality. However, the Eagle is notoriously sensitive to disturbance, especially early in the nesting cycle.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Field Ornithology, 26(4), p. 142-147||Publisher:||Bird Observation and Conservation Australia||Place of Publication:||Melbourne, Australia||ISSN:||1448-0107||Field of Research (FOR):||060809 Vertebrate Biology||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||960806 Forest and Woodlands Flora, Fauna and Biodiversity||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.une.edu.au/staff/sdebus.php
