A federation of seven states on the southeast portion of the Arabian peninsula: Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm al-Qaiwain. In 1820 a treaty of peace was concluded between Great Britain and native rulers. During the 19th century the rulers agreed to suppression of the slave trade and restriction of foreign relations to Great Britain. The Trucial Council was established in 1952 and defense treaties with Great Britain terminated. In 1971 an independent six-member federation was formed, with Ras al-Khaimah joining the federation in 1972. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p1250)

Effects of electromagnetic fields on photophasic circulating melatonin levels in American kestrels. (1/67)

Birds reproduce within electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from transmission lines. Melatonin influences physiologic and behavioral processes that are critical to survival, and melatonin has been equivocally suppressed by EMFs in mammalian species. We examined whether EMFs affect photophasic plasma melatonin in reproducing adult and fledgling American kestrels (Falco sparverius), and whether melatonin was correlated with body mass to explain previously reported results. Captive kestrel pairs were bred under control or EMF conditions for one (short-term) or two (long-term) breeding seasons. EMF exposure had an overall effect on plasma melatonin in male kestrels, with plasma levels suppressed at 42 days and elevated at 70 days of EMF exposure. The similarity in melatonin levels between EMF males at 42 days and controls at 70 days suggests a seasonal phase-shift of the melatonin profile caused by EMF exposure. Melatonin was also suppressed in long-term fledglings, but not in short-term fledglings or adult females. Melatonin levels in adult males were higher than in adult females, possibly explaining the sexually dimorphic response to EMFs. Melatonin and body mass were not associated in American kestrels. It is likely that the results are relevant to wild raptors nesting within EMFs.  (+info)

Isolation of West Nile virus from mosquitoes, crows, and a Cooper's hawk in Connecticut. (2/67)

West Nile (WN) virus, a mosquito-transmitted virus native to Africa, Asia, and Europe, was isolated from two species of mosquitoes, Culex pipiens and Aedes vexans, and from brain tissues of 28 American crows, Corvus brachyrhynchos, and one Cooper's hawk, Accipiter cooperii, in Connecticut. A portion of the genome of virus isolates from four different hosts was sequenced and analyzed by comparative phylogenetic analysis. Our isolates from Connecticut were similar to one another and most closely related to two WN isolates from Romania (2.8 and 3.6 percent difference). If established in North America, WN virus will likely have severe effects on human health and on the health of populations of birds.  (+info)

Habitat loss and raptor predation: disentangling long- and short-term causes of red grouse declines. (3/67)

The number of red grouse (Lagopus lagopus scoticus) shot in the UK has declined by 50% during the 20th century This decline has coincided with reductions in the area of suitable habitat and recoveries in the populations of some avian predators. Here we use long-term records of shooting bags and a large-scale manipulation of raptor density to disentangle the effects of habitat loss and raptor predation on grouse populations. The numbers of grouse harvested on the Eskdale half of Langholm Moor in southern Scotland declined significantly during 1913-1990 and grouse bags from the whole moor from 1950 to 1990 exhibited an almost identical but non-significant trend. Hen harriers (Circus cyaneus) and peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus) were absent or bred at low densities on this moor throughout this period but heather-dominant vegetation declined by 48% between 1948 and 1988. Harrier and peregrine breeding numbers on Langholm Moor increased to high levels following protection in 1990 whilst grouse density and grouse bags declined year after year until shooting was abandoned in 1998. The prediction of a peak in grouse bags on Langholm Moor in 1996 based on the patterns of bags during 1950-1990 was supported by the observed peaks in 1997 on two nearby moors with few raptors which formerly cycled in synchrony with Langholm Moor. This study demonstrates that, whilst long-term declines in grouse bags were most probably due to habitat loss, high levels of raptor predation subsequently limited the grouse population and suppressed a cycle. This study thus offers support to theoretical models which predict that generalist predators may suppress cycles in prey populations.  (+info)

Recovery and identification of West Nile virus from a hawk in winter. (4/67)

West Nile virus was recovered from the brain of a red-tailed hawk that died in Westchester County, N.Y., in February 2000. Multiple foci of glial cells, lymphocytes, and a few pyknotic nuclei were observed in the brain. Three to 4 days after inoculation of Vero cells with brain homogenates, cytopathic changes were detected. The presence of West Nile virus antigen in fixed cells or cell lysates was revealed by fluorescent antibody testing or enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, respectively. Furthermore, Reverse transcriptase-PCR with primers specific for the NS3 gene of West Nile virus resulted in an amplicon of the expected size (470 bp). Electron microscopy of thin sections of infected Vero cells revealed the presence of viral particles approximately 40 nm in diameter, within cytoplasmic vesicles. The demonstration of infection with the West Nile virus in the dead of the winter, long after mosquitoes ceased to be active, is significant in that it testifies to the survival of the virus in the region beyond mosquito season and suggests another route of transmission: in this case, prey to predator.  (+info)

Genetics, local environment and health as factors influencing plasma carotenoids in wild American kestrels (Falco sparverius). (5/67)

Carotenoids are important as pigments for bright coloration of animals, and as physiologically active compounds with a wide array of health-related functions. Carotenoid-dependent coloration may have evolved as a signal to conspecifics; however, factors that may limit availability of carotenoids are poorly known. We investigated how the acquisition of carotenoids may be constrained by availability in the environment, diet, genetic make-up and health status of wild American kestrels (Falco sparverius). Plasma concentrations of siblings at the time of fledging showed a high degree of resemblance; however, a cross-fostering experiment revealed that variance was largely explained by nest of rearing, rather than nest of origin, thus indicating a low genetic component. A multivariate analysis of attributes of nestlings (sex, size, plasma proteins, immune function), parental reproduction (laying date, clutch size) and rearing conditions (brood size, size hierarchy, nestling mortality) showed only a small significant effect of leucocyte differentials on carotenoid concentrations of nestlings. A strong environmental effect on plasma carotenoids was demonstrated by levels of adult kestrels being correlated within mated pairs, and having a significant association with the abundance of voles, the primary prey species, per territory.  (+info)

Yolk androgens reduce offspring survival. (6/67)

Females may favour some offspring over others by differential deposition of yolk hormones. In American kestrels (Falco sparverius), we found that yolks of eggs laid late in the sequence of a clutch had more testosterone (T) and androstenedione (A4) than yolks of first-laid eggs. To investigate the effects of these yolk androgens on nestling 'fitness', we injected both T and A4 into the yolks of first-laid eggs and compared their hatching time, nestling growth and nestling survival with those of first-laid eggs in which we injected vehicle as a control. Compared to controls, injection of T and A4 at a dose intended to increase their levels to those of later-laid eggs delayed hatching and reduced nestling growth and survival rates. Yolk androgen treatment of egg 1 had no effect on survival of siblings hatching from subsequently laid eggs. The adverse actions of yolk androgen treatment in the kestrel are in contrast to the favourable actions of yolk T treatment found previously in canaries (Serinus canaria). Additional studies are necessary in order to determine whether the deposition of yolk androgens is an adaptive form of parental favouritism or an adverse by-product of endocrine processes during egg formation. Despite its adaptive significance, such 'transgenerational' effects of steroid hormones may have helped to evolutionarily shape the hormonal mechanisms regulating reproduction.  (+info)

Gliding flight: drag and torque of a hawk and a falcon with straight and turned heads, and a lower value for the parasite drag coefficient. (7/67)

Raptors - falcons, hawks and eagles in this study - such as peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus) that attack distant prey from high-speed dives face a paradox. Anatomical and behavioral measurements show that raptors of many species must turn their heads approximately 40 degrees to one side to see the prey straight ahead with maximum visual acuity, yet turning the head would presumably slow their diving speed by increasing aerodynamic drag. This paper investigates the aerodynamic drag part of this paradox by measuring the drag and torque on wingless model bodies of a peregrine falcon and a red-tailed hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) with straight and turned heads in a wind tunnel at a speed of 11.7 m s(-)(1). With a turned head, drag increased more than 50 %, and torque developed that tended to yaw the model towards the direction in which the head pointed. Mathematical models for the drag required to prevent yawing showed that the total drag could plausibly more than double with head-turning. Thus, the presumption about increased drag in the paradox is correct. The relationships between drag, head angle and torque developed here are prerequisites to the explanation of how a raptor could avoid the paradox by holding its head straight and flying along a spiral path that keeps its line of sight for maximum acuity pointed sideways at the prey. Although the spiral path to the prey is longer than the straight path, the raptor's higher speed can theoretically compensate for the difference in distances; and wild peregrines do indeed approach prey by flying along curved paths that resemble spirals. In addition to providing data that explain the paradox, this paper reports the lowest drag coefficients yet measured for raptor bodies (0.11 for the peregrine and 0.12 for the red-tailed hawk) when the body models with straight heads were set to pitch and yaw angles for minimum drag. These values are markedly lower than value of the parasite drag coefficient (C(D,par)) of 0.18 previously used for calculating the gliding performance of a peregrine. The accuracy with which drag coefficients measured on wingless bird bodies in a wind tunnel represent the C(D,par) of a living bird is unknown. Another method for determining C(D,par) selects values that improve the fit between speeds predicted by mathematical models and those observed in living birds. This method yields lower values for C(D,par) (0.05-0.07) than wind tunnel measurements, and the present study suggests a value of 0.1 for raptors as a compromise.  (+info)

The deep fovea, sideways vision and spiral flight paths in raptors. (8/67)

Raptors - falcons, hawks and eagles in this study - have two regions of the retina in each eye that are specialized for acute vision: the deep fovea and the shallow fovea. The line of sight of the deep fovea points forwards and approximately 45 degrees to the right or left of the head axis, while that of the shallow fovea also points forwards but approximately 15 degrees to the right or left of the head axis. The anatomy of the foveae suggests that the deep fovea has the higher acuity. Several species of raptors in this study repeatedly moved their heads among three positions while looking at an object: straight, with the head axis pointing towards the object; or sideways to the right or left, with the head axis pointing approximately 40 degrees to the side of the object. Since raptors do not rotate their eyes noticeably in the sockets, these movements presumably cause the image of the object to fall on the shallow and deep foveae. The movements occurred approximately every 2 s on average in hawks and falcons, and approximately every 5 s in bald eagles. The proportion of time that the raptors spent looking straight or sideways at an object depended on how far away the object was. At a distances closer than 8 m, they spent more time looking at the object straight, but as the distance increased to 21 m, they spent more time looking at it sideways. At distances of 40 m or more, raptors looked sideways at the object 80 % or more of the time. This dependence of head position on distance suggests that raptors use their more acute sideways vision to look at distant objects and sacrifice acuity for stereoscopic binocular vision to look at close objects. Having their most acute vision towards the side causes a conflict in raptors such as falcons, which dive at prey from great distances at high speeds: at a speed of 70 m s(-)(1), turning their head sideways to view the prey straight ahead with high visual acuity may increase aerodynamic drag by a factor of 2 or more and slow the raptor down. Raptors could resolve this conflict by diving along a logarithmic spiral path with their head straight and one eye looking sideways at the prey, rather than following the straight path to the prey with their head turned sideways. Although the spiral path is longer than the straight path, a mathematical model for an 'ideal falcon' shows that the falcon could reach the prey more quickly along the spiral path because the speed advantage of a straight head more than compensates for the longer path.  (+info)

A cherished icon of the West, the prehistoric-looking California condor remains one of the worlds most endangered species. North Americas largest avian narrowly escaped extinction in the mid-1980s when the last 22 wild California condors became star participants in a captive-breeding program. Thanks to those efforts, more than 200 condors flew freely in California and Arizona by 2013. But recovery is still in jeopardy: A significant percentage of all released condors have died or been returned to captivity. Poisoning by ingestion of lead shot - scavenged along with carcasses left behind by hunters - is one of the most widespread and preventable causes of condor deaths. The Centers Get the Lead Out Campaign early on asked California and Arizona to require the use of nonlead ammunition within the condors range, resulting in Californias historic Ridley-Tree Condor Preservation Act, as well as a settlement with Californias wildlife agencies eliminating lead ammunition for depredation hunting ...
Clean energy and conservation are at odds over wind farm turbine threats to the California Condor. A shadow is falling on the Tehachapi green energy transmission line, cast by the nine-and-a-half-foot wingspan of a Pleistocene-born bird of uncommon intelligence and longevity - the California condor.
In 1985,we first saw Marty McFly zooming Back to the Future to make sure he and his family didnt disappear. Also in 1985, our biologists were capturing California condors in an effort to make sure the species didnt disappear. Between 1983 and 1987, the Service-led California Condor Recovery Program captured 22 California condors -- were only ones left in the wild anywhere on Earth. The goal was to breed the birds in captivity and release them back into the wild.. MORE: Find photos and video interviews. On August 7, 1985, our biologists captured 5-year-old male California condor AC-4 at Bitter Creek National Wildlife Refuge in Kern County, California. AC-4 turned out to be integral to the recovery of the California condor population. He successfully sired 30 chicks that have been released into the wild population -- the third most productive sire in the program. He was also part of the pair that produced the first egg and first chick from wild birds in captivity in 1988.. Fast forward to ...
THS Director, Rick Speare, gave the opening address at the Australian Wildlife Rehabilitation Conference being held in Townsville 16-20 July. The lecture was titled Adventures in wildlife disease research: from benign curiosities to global epidemics. In this talk Rick discussed an eclectic range of conditions in Australian wildlife that he had investigated over 34 years of research: from strange parasites and diseases in macropods and possums to globally significant work on diseases causing epidemics in wild amphibians. He also highlighted the important role wildlife carers can play in unraveling the mysteries of wildlife diseases. This not only improves the outcomes of rehabilitation of individual animals, but can add significantly to conservation of wildlife. Wildlife carers are the eyes of the wildlife disease surveillance system.. For a researcher interested in new diseases wildlife is the last frontier. The vast and varied Australian fauna gives immense possibilities for pathogens to call ...
Call a rehabilitator for answers. Yes, we want that baby to be safe from predators, but give that baby a chance. The worst thing that happens in these situations is an improper diet being fed by the rescuer. This will result in death, if not right away, then in time, due to improper development. Different birds require different diets and different amounts of food at different times. Here is where a wildlife rehabilitators knowledge and experience makes all the difference. Dont try to do this yourself, only to attempt to find a rehabilitator as the baby is dying due to your efforts. When they are at this stage, there is very little that can be done AND it is also illegal to attempt raising wildlife. Only a permitted wildlife rehabilitator can do this legally, for we know how to keep them wild and ready for release as well. Making them pets, besides being illegal is very selfish and is not whats best for the wildlife. They need to be free and have learned how to find the food they will need ...
The California Department of Fish and Game (CDFG) appreciates the many public and private animal control departments, veterinarians, shelters, rescue organizations and volunteers that provide humane care for wild animals. These organizations provide an important service and are often called upon to be first responders for wildlife emergencies and to find legal placement for the care of wild birds and animals.. What should I do if I find, or a client brings me, an injured or orphaned wild animal?. The California Code of Regulations, Title 14, Section 679, states that the public has 48 hours to contact the Department of Fish and Game or a licensed rehabilitator to place an injured or orphaned wild animal. Veterinarians must also comply with this regulation if they are not a permitted wildlife rehabilitation facility, or working directly with a licensed rehabilitator. The Department recognizes that there are times when a wild animal may need intensive care for more that 48 hours. In these cases ...

The California Condor is one of the rarest of all North American birds and one of the rarest birds in the world. In fact, during the first half of the century there were only 60 individual condors. Now there is less than 40 despite the conservation efforts that are put forth by biologists and other American authorities. Today the California Condors range is limited to a small region that is north of Los Angeles. Soaring at speeds of 35-40 miles per hour the California Condor cleaned carrion from roads, ranches and beaches. There is absolutely no record of these magnificent birds attacking a living animal, however they were routinely shot, mostly by farmers and ranchers. Also California Condors were being exterminated by lead poisoning. However, zoologists are trying to change the condors upcoming fate. Molloko is the first ever captive condor that was bred in captivity in history, born in April, 1988 at the San Diego Wild Animal Park. Its future lies in the hands of captive breeding and when ...

So, youre going on a raptor watch trip. Hmmm…feeling confident with your raptor id skills, eh?. How do you identify raptors in the sky? How do the beer-guzzling guys do it? Well, mope no further. Let me try to help you out. You do know what raptors are, right? Theyre birds of prey that hunt for food during the day. That separates them from owls.. The Philippines has several migrant raptor species, somewhere around twelve or thirteen, but in a typical raptor watch trip, you could expect about three to five species. Three to five doesnt sound like a daunting task but the birds are high up and are sometimes in mixed flocks. Thats where the problem lies not to mention it is quite hard to tell one perched raptor from another. So, heres a quick way of identifying them birds.. The trick to identifying migratory raptors is to know what to expect and to read up on them before the trip. Now, if youre the lazy type you can just stand behind the experienced guys and repeat what they say. Why waste ...
BACKGROUND: Studies of non-model species are important for understanding the molecular processes underpinning phenotypic variation under natural ecological conditions. The common buzzard (Buteo buteo; Aves: Accipitriformes) is a widespread and common Eurasian raptor with three distinct plumage morphs that differ in several fitness-related traits, including parasite infestation. To provide a genomic resource for plumage polymorphic birds in general and to search for candidate genes relating to fitness, we generated a transcriptome from a single dead buzzard specimen plus easily accessible, minimally invasive samples from live chicks. RESULTS: We not only de novo assembled a near-complete buzzard transcriptome, but also obtained a significant fraction of the transcriptome of its malaria-like parasite, Leucocytozoon buteonis. By identifying melanogenesis-related transcripts that are differentially expressed in light ventral and dark dorsal feathers, but which are also expressed in other regions of ...

The Raptor Rehabilitation Program at Washington State Universitys College of Veterinary Medicine is committed to unmatched care for all raptors including eagles, falcons, hawks, and owls. Each year, WSUs Veterinary Teaching Hospital treats approximately 100 sick and injured raptors that may have been hit by automobiles, burned by power lines, poisoned, or found starving because of loss of prey. The Raptor Rehabilitation Program provides medical care, food, and shelter to sick or injured birds, returning them to the wild whenever possible. The mews in the Stauber Raptor Facility house recovering and resident birds.. Resident birds that are not able to be returned to the wild are cared for at the college and participate in public education programs through the WSU Raptor Club, a non-profit volunteer organization founded in 1981. The raptors and club volunteers visit service organizations, fairs, summer camps, and schools to educate children and adults about raptor conservation and the lives of ...
Diurnal raptors (birds of the orders Accipitriformes and Falconiformes), renowned for their extraordinarily sharp eyesight, have fascinated humans for centuries. The high visual acuity in some raptor species is possible due to their large eyes, both in relative and absolute terms, and a high density of cone photoreceptors. Some large raptors, such as wedge-tailed eagles and the Old World vultures, have visual acuities twice as high as humans and six times as high as ostriches-the animals with the largest terrestrial eyes. The raptor retina has rods, double cones, and four spectral types of single cones. The highest density of single cones occurs in one or two specialized retinal regions: the foveae, where, at least in some species, rods and double cones are absent. The deep central fovea allows for the highest acuity in the lateral visual field that is probably used for detecting prey from a large distance. Pursuit-hunting raptors have a second, shallower, temporal fovea that allows for sharp vision in
Regulatory associated protein of mTOR, complex 1 (Raptor) is encoded by the RPTOR gene. It is involved in the control of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) and is a subunit of mTORC1. Raptor binds to mTOR kinase and functions as a scaffold for recruiting mTORC1 substrates. It also associates with eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E-binding protein 1 (EIF4BP1) and ribosomal protein S6 kinase (S6K1). Raptor negatively regulates mTOR kinase but positively regulates S6K1. Raptor also interacts with unc-51-like kinase 1 (ULK1) in a nutrient-dependent manner. Raptor is also known as p150 target of rapamycin (TOR)-scaffold protein, KIAA1303, KOG1, and Mip1.. ...

singlepic id=311 w=216 h=290 float=left]Six California Condors, among the most endangered birds in the world, have recently been recovered suffering from lead poisoning. Three of these subsequently died from lead poisoning from ammunition, while three others were treated for lead poisoning, according to The Peregrine Funds Condor Recovery Program in Arizona. This brings the total number of California condors killed by lead in the last 11 years to 19.. This tragic news comes as little surprise for those of us engaged in the lead ammunition issue. We expect more condor, eagle, and other bird deaths as long as lead remains an ingredient in bullets and shot used for hunting, said George Fenwick, President of American Bird Conservancy. Ammunition manufacturers have introduced superior non-toxic ammunition both for shotguns and for hunting rifles, and hunters report the newer non-toxic bullets outperform traditional ammunition. The cost of non-toxic ammunition is now the same as for premium lead ...
In modern times, a wide variety of causes have contributed to the California condors decline. Its low clutch size (one young per nest), combined with a late age of sexual maturity, make the bird vulnerable to artificial population decline. Significant past damage to the condor population has also been attributed to poaching,[57] lead poisoning (from eating animals containing lead shot),[58] DDT poisoning,[59] electric power lines, egg collecting, and habitat destruction. During the California Gold Rush, some condors were even kept as pets.[60] The leading cause of mortality in nestling condors is the ingestion of trash that is fed to them by their parents.[61] Unanticipated deaths among condor populations occurred due to contact with golden eagles, lead poisoning, and other factors such as power line collisions.[62] Since 1994, captive-bred California condors have been trained to avoid power lines and people. Since the implementation of this aversion conditioning program, the number of condor ...
State and local wildlife officials are asking Marin residents to make sure deceased pets and livestock are properly disposed of as turkey vultures have recently been poisoned by a euthanasia drug.. California Department of Fish and Wildlife officials confirmed Friday that six turkey vultures treated by WildCare, a wildlife rehabilitation center in San Rafael, from July to October of last year were poisoned after ingesting pentobarbital - a barbiturate used to euthanize animals such as dogs, livestock and horses.. Stella McMillin, senior environmental scientist at the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, said WildCare submitted samples of the birds stomach contents to the California Animal Health and Food Safety Laboratory at the University of California at Davis for testing. Once the drug was identified, state wildlife officials tried to determine where the birds were getting sick.. We couldnt pinpoint it to any particular source, McMillin said. Its not common at all and something I ...
|p| Sorry to disappoint all the dinosaur lovers out there, but these raptors are of the birds of prey variety. The Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota’s College of Veterinary Medicine is a clinic that provides care to sick and injured raptors. In addition to describing the clinic, the website for the Raptor Center also provides nice sections devoted to education, conservation, and miscellaneous raptor-related activities (an owl paper bag puppet, anyone?). The education section contains information about all of the raptors kept at the clinic as education birds, as well a page providing detailed information about 40 different species of raptors. The species-specific information covers identifying characteristics, range, habitat, nesting, and feeding habits of the birds. For younger audiences, the “just for fun” section of the website includes activity books, puppets and masks, and games (such as matching chicks with their adult counterparts).|/p|

Occasionally, you might find seemingly injured animals in the garden, such as stunned birds that have flown into a window or nocturnal creatures like grounded bats or hedgehogs that are out during day time. Before doing anything, inform yourself and make sure the animal really needs help. If it is a baby bird or other young animal, remember that wild creatures do not take care of their offspring as humans do and can leave them alone for a day before they come back. If necessary, you can take the animal somewhere safe and give it only water until it recovers. For serious injuries, please go to the nearest wildlife rehabilitation center ...

Our condor nest boxes are elevated; theyre on the second floor of the condor breeding facility. The nests have one entrance that leads to the roost area. The entrance has an 18-inch barrier at the base to prevent young hatchlings from wandering out of our cameras view. This barrier also provides exercise for the chick when it is big enough to start jumping up onto the barrier. The roost area is open to the flight pen and has a ledge that is about eight feet off of the ground. There is a five-inch-diameter pole leaning from the ground to the ledge; we call this the pole ladder. The condors can walk up or down this pole ladder to get to or from the nest. They can, of course, fly to the nest as well if they desire.. For a few weeks, Antiki was able to walk down the pole ladder to start exploring the flight pen. She would watch Sisquoc and Shatash eat, sometimes begging for them to feed her, sometimes playing tug-of-war trying to take food from them. She also got to drink from the pool for the ...
American badgers are solitary animals that are classified as a sensitive species in Alberta. While badgers do not truly hibernate, they do conserve energy in the winter by cycling through states of torpor in which their metabolism and physical activity decrease. Breeding occurs in August, but the fetus does not implant until December - February, remaining dormant until then. Young are born in early April, eyes closed and furless. Badgers are threatened due to habitat fragmentation, loss of prey species, and due to being trapped, shot and poisoned by humans. ...
Dr. Heather Barron presented this webinar on avian critical care. View a recording of the live, interactive event, then take the brief post-test to earn 1 hour of continuing education credit. The goal of wildlife medicine is always eventual release and therefore triage of avian wildlife may vary based on case load, regulations, and the presenting situation. Dr. Barron examines the guidelines used to set triage policy and the reasons a bird may not be releasable or have a good quality of life in captivity. She then discusses practical measures intended to alleviate suffering and improve the odds of patient survival, such as fluid support, analgesia, evaluation of blood volume, and transfusion. This presentation concludes with a brief discussion on assessing life and euthanasia.. ...

Bitterwater is an unincorporated community in the Bitterwater Valley of San Benito County, California, United States.[1] Bitterwater is located at 36°22′49″N 121°00′10″W / 36.38028°N 121.00278°W / 36.38028; -121.00278. Bitterwater Valley, located at the base of the Diablo Range mountains on a crucial earthquake, San Andreas Fault, was once the primary habitat of the giant California condors. Around 1946, DDT poison was introduced throughout that area to kill coyotes, prairie dogs, mountain lions, and other animals that ate crops or posed a threat to ranch or farm animals. As the condors ate the animals killed by DDT, they too vanished.[citation needed] But as humans decimated the California Condor, they realized this and changed tactics. Now the Bitterwater Valley in California is home to many condors. No prairie dogs exist in Bitterwater but the digger squirrel is very pervasive in the area, as well as coyote, California badger, redtail hawks, and wild turkey. Bitterwater ...
Issuy (ee-SOO-ee): Female, 6 months old, wearing tag Yellow 43 (right wing). California condors that are expected to be released to the wild are called release candidates. We raise all of our condor chicks as if they are release candidates until we hear otherwise from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, which oversees the California Condor Recovery Program. We have yet to hear if and/or where any of this years fledglings will be released. Release candidates are isolated from humans. We offer their food through a chute in the wall. The pools are drained and rinsed from the outside of the pen. We dont pick up any of their old food. The only time the birds see us is during a medical procedure: affixing wingtags, pre-shipment examinations, or West Nile Virus inoculations. These generally are not enjoyable experiences for the young condors, and that is what we want them to learn from us before they are shipped to the wild. We dont want them to associate humans with anything beneficial. We are hoping ...

The protein mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) is a serine/threonine kinase regulating a number of biochemical pathways controlling cell growth. mTOR exists in two complexes termed mTORC1 and mTORC2. Raptor is associated with mTORC1 and is essential for its function. Ablation of Raptor in skeletal muscle results in several phenotypic changes including decreased life expectancy, increased glycogen deposits and alterations of the twitch kinetics of slow fibres. Here we show that in muscle specific raptor knock-out the bulk of glycogen phosphorylase is mainly associated in its cAMP-non stimulated form with sarcoplasmic reticulum membranes. In addition, 3[H]-ryanodine and 3[H]-PN200-110 equilibrium binding show a ryanodine to dihydropyridine receptors ratio of 0.79 and 1.35 for wild type and raptor knock-out skeletal muscle membranes, respectively. Peak amplitude and time to peak of the global calcium transients evoked by supramaximal field stimulation were not different between wild type and ...

The California condors return from near extinction is threatened by persistent exposure to lead-based bullets, despite intensive efforts to treat and care for poisoned birds each year, scientists say. Lead poisoning in the condors is now of epidemic proportions, said Myra Finkelstein, a research toxicologist at UC Santa Cruz and the principal author of a report on the condor problem in this weeks issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Captive breeding programs, hatcheries for eggs gathered from abandoned nests in the wild and many other conservation efforts have been hailed as great successes in saving the condor from extinction.

A seminal question in ecotoxicology is the extent to which contaminant exposure evokes prolonged effects on physiological function and fitness. A series of studies were undertaken with American kestrels ingesting environmentally realistic concentrations of the second-generation anticoagulant rodenticide (SGAR) brodifacoum (BROD). Kestrels fed BROD at 0.3, 1.0 or 3.0 µg/g diet wet wt for 7 d exhibited dose-dependent hemorrhage, histopathological lesions and coagulopathy (prolonged prothrombin and Russells viper venom times). Following termination of a 7 d exposure to 0.5 µg BROD/g diet, prolonged blood clotting time returned to baseline values within a week, but BROD residues in liver and kidney (terminal half-life estimates |50 d) persisted during the 28 d recovery period. In order to examine the hazard of sequential AR exposure, kestrels were exposed to either the firstgeneration AR chlorophacinone (CPN; 1.5 µg/g diet) or the SGAR BROD (0.5 µg/g diet) for 7 d, and following a recovery period,...
Size readily distinguishes this species from most other raptors when it is seen well. Most other raptors are considerably smaller. Buteo hawks, which are perhaps most similar to the golden eagle in structure among the species outside of the booted eagle group, are often counted among the larger very common raptors. However, a mid-sized Buteo is dwarfed by a golden eagle, as an adult female eagle has about double the wingspan and about five times the weight. Buteos are also usually distinctly paler below, although some species occur in dark morphs which can be darker than a golden eagle.[5][29] Among raptorial birds that share the golden eagles range, only some Old World vultures and the California condor are distinctly larger, with longer, broader wings, typically held more evenly in a slower, less forceful flight; they often have dramatically different colour patterns. In North America, the golden eagle may be confused with the turkey vulture from a great distance, as it is a large species ...
Fecal sample extraction (using 100% ethanol) and radioimmunoassay procedures were validated to permit accurate noninvasive assessments of fecal steroid metabolites in captive golden eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) and peregrine falcons (Falcoperegrinus). Furthermore, laboratory validations illustrated that serial dilutions of fecal extracts yielded displacement curves parallel to those of standard preparations for all assays. Recovery of known concentrations of unlabeled steroids in males and females for both species ranged from 97.3 9.8% (y = 1.03x - 0.63, R2= 0.98) to 119.4 5.3% (y = 1.04x + 4.11, R2 = 1.00). Additionally, in the golden eagles, HPLC analyses of fecal B in males and females illustrated that 2.7% and 2.5%, respectively, coeluted with [3HJB; however, a total of 7.5% and 11 .9% of total immunoreactivity coeluted with the reference tracer in the peregrine falcon males and females, respectively. Chromatographic profiles of E metabolites in golden eagle and peregrine falcon females ...
Abstract We first examine how falcons can be integrated into avian tree of life. Then we go one step further and investigate the position of Peregrine Falcons in a comprehensive phylogeny of the falcons (genus Falco), which was reconstructed on the basis of DNA sequences. Whether the 19 subspecies of the Peregrine Falcon can be identified genetically is examined in the next step. Recently, the question of Peregrine Falcons genetics in Central Europe has become of wider interest. Which subspecies was present before the collapse of populations and which currently after various reintroduction projects? Evidence is provided, that Central Europe constitutes a (natural) hybrid zone between F. p. brookei from the Mediterranean and F. p. peregrinus of northern Europe.
September 26, 2003 We have just received a belated Peregrine Falcon sighting from August. A viewer who is a delivery driver reported seeing five peregrines on a building at 90 Dey Street in Jersey City. He reported that this building is relatively vacant and is home to a large number of pigeons. It is entirely possible that the 101 Hudson Street falcons were still at least occasionally in the company of their parents at that time. Perhaps through viewer sightings we will be able to increase our knowledge of the dispersal of young falcons. Since Peregrines can wander quite far from their nest site after fledging, there is a lot unknown about exactly how long the young birds stay with their parents and each other before striking out on their own. On the New Jersey hawk watches this past week we have seen a number of juvenile peregrines. Peregrine Falcon migration peaks in the first two weeks of October, and there is nothing quite so glorious as a Peregrine Falcon in flight, sometimes stooping ...
By Amy Miller. The lone hawk sat on our swing five feet from a gaggle of neighborhood children. Its a juvenile, my-son-the-raptor-expert declared.. About 50 times the size of the hummingbird fluttering over the nearby hibiscus, it didnt look like a juvenile to me.. Thats why its so close and not afraid of us, Benjamin informed me.. One week its stink bugs, the next its red-tailed hawks. Humbling the things your kids know (and you dont).. When I asked Benjamin how he knew it was a red-tailed hawk, he looked at me like I had asked him the color of Grants white horse? Besides large red tails, these hawks have predominantly auburn bodies and a few dark feathers along the outer lines of the wings.. The next day the definitely a red-tailed hawk landed in a tree outside my window. Never before had a bird of prey been so near for so long to our family homestead. I stopped friends driving by, called neighborhood children from their dinners and took a number of pictures thinkable only in the ...
This Coopers Hawk flew into a window. Coopers are extremely fast and agile as they hunt smaller birds. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for a Coopers Hawk to not notice a window and fly into it at full speed. The Coopers was standing but was extremely quiet when we received him. No fractures were found on radiographs. Internal injuries are evident as there is space between his organs, but it is difficult to determine the severity based on the radiographs. As you can see in the photo, his right pupil is larger than the left. There is some blood inside his right eye as well as his mouth. His diagnosis: head trauma with possible concussion and eye injury. He will be kept in the dark and quiet for the rest of the day. Coopers Hawks are extremely high strung and nervous which makes them very difficult to rehab ...
By Dylan Vazzano, Sports Information Coordinator. MURRAY, Ky. - It was a banner evening for the Tennessee Tech soccer team at the OVC Awards Banquet as a slew of Golden Eagles captured All-Conference honors behind one of the best seasons in program history.. Sophomore Kari Naerdemann took home the OVCs Defensive Player of the Year award for the second-straight season, and was one of three Golden Eagles to be named to All-Conference first team, joining senior Abi Gearing and junior Lauren Brewer on the prestigious list as Tech became the only school in the conference with three first teamers. Junior Karigan Owens was named to the All-OVC second team, while freshman Nora Vicsek secured a spot on the All-Newcomer team.. Kari Naerdemann becomes the first Golden Eagle to win back-to-back Defensive Player of the Year awards since Kelli McCoy, who hoisted the hardware in 1999 and 2000. The Herne, Germany native leads the conference in both goals against average (0.62) and save percentage (.859), and ...

The question begs: what can we do more to prevent this spread? Obviously we can stop visiting caves. But are there steps we can take before we reach that conclusion? What do you think?. From the article:. On 11 March 2016, a moribund little brown bat (Myotis lucifugus) was found in King County, WA (United States), and submitted to a local wildlife rehabilitation center. The animal presented with dried and contracted areas of crusted skin on the wings and died 2 days later. Swab samples of the wings were positive for P. destructans by real-time PCR (8), and the bat was confirmed to have WNS in accordance with defined histopathologic criteria (9). An isolate of P. destructanswas obtained by culturing a portion of wing skin on Sabouraud dextrose agar containing chloramphenicol and gentamicin at 13°C.. In eastern North America, P. destructans appears to be spreading clonally, with all isolates exhibiting no genetic diversity at the markers examined (10). However, isolates of the fungus from Europe ...

Let us discover some of the most interesting red tailed hawk facts for kids including red tailed hawk habitat, diet, reproduction and species. Soaring in steady circles in the sky leaving red tail shinning or perched on a telephone pole deliberately scanning the ground, the red tailed hawk is the most common best-recognized hawk in the state. The red-tailed hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) is a large bird of prey that is endemic to North America.
As of 6:15 pm Saturday night, we continue the vigil awaiting the hatching of the first falcon egg! In the worth noting department: from time to time, the birds stand up and rotate the eggs. This is an important chore, as it ensures that the eggs are uniformly warmed and prevents the embryos from sticking to their shell, which could be a problem during hatching.. An egg is an amazing creation. It is fragile enough for a tiny chick to peck its way out, yet strong enough to withstand the weight of an incubating adult. That wasnt always true. According to the staff at the Peregrine Fund in Idaho, in the 1960s, scientists discovered that the pesticide DDT caused physiological problems in female Peregrine Falcons, resulting in thin-shelled eggs that broke during incubation.. DDT was banned in 1972 and The Peregrine Fund helped recover this once-endangered species with captive breeding and releases to the wild. It was one of the most successful conservation efforts in history!. ...
WKU prevailed by set scores of 25-20, 25-18 and 25-13, but the Golden Eagles found some positive features in the loss.. Defensively, the Golden Eagles held WKU below its season attack average. The Lady Toppers hit .200, recording 22 hitting errors, nine of those errors forced by the Tech block at the net.. The Golden Eagles out-blocked the Lady Toppers, 9-6, with senior Kelsey Gray leading the stand with two solo blocks and four block assists. Newcomer Cody Dodd set up the block on the outside, assisting in two blocks, and knocking down a solo block. Tech had its best offensive performance since opening the season at UT Chattanooga two weeks ago. Tech hit just below its season average of 9.8 kills/set, averaging eight kills. In last weekends tournament, the Golden Eagles averaged an .055 clip. The Golden Eagle attack spread offenses to several hitters, including pinhitters Natalie Penrod, Ellen Conti and Dodd, who all hit above the .200 mark. Penrod led the Golden Eagles with nine ...

The peregrine falcon nests in a scrape, normally on cliff edges. The female chooses a nest site, where she scrapes a shallow hollow in the loose soil, sand, gravel, or dead vegetation in which to lay eggs. No nest materials are added.[14] Cliff nests are generally located under an overhang, on ledges with vegetation. South-facing sites are favoured.[18] In some regions, as in parts of Australia and on the west coast of northern North America, large tree hollows are used for nesting. Before the demise of most European peregrines, a large population of peregrines in central and western Europe used the disused nests of other large birds.[19] In remote, undisturbed areas such as the Arctic, steep slopes and even low rocks and mounds may be used as nest sites. In many parts of its range, peregrines now also nest regularly on tall buildings or bridges; these human-made structures used for breeding closely resemble the natural cliff ledges that the peregrine prefers for its nesting ...
The structure of the wake behind a kestrel in medium-speed flight down a 36 m length of corridor was analysed qualitatively and quantitatively by stereophotogrammetry of multiple flash photographs of the motion of small soap-covered helium bubbles. The wake consists of a pair of continuous, undulating trailing vortices. The upstroke is therefore aerodynamically active and the circulation appears to remain constant along the wing whose geometry is altered during the course of the wingstroke. It is argued that the flight kinematics, and so the wake structure, of the kestrel may be typical of flapping flight at medium speeds and a flight model based on this wake geometry is presented. Rough estimates of the rate of momentum generated in the wake balance the weight almost exactly and a direct estimate of the induced power requirement from the wake measurements is obtained. The significance of these results for the various alternative aerodynamic descriptions and energetic predictions of models of ...
An adult Buteo was found dead as a road-kill south of Sacramento, California, and was thought to represent the first state record of the eastern Red-shouldered Hawk (B. lineatus lineatus;). It is now a specimen in the Museum of Wildlife and Fisheries Biology (WFB 4816) at the University of California, Davis. We examined this specimen and found that many of its plumage characters differed from all other adult Red-shouldered Hawks examined, including nominate adults. Plumage markings and measurements were intermediate between Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis, ssp calurus) and Red-shouldered Hawk (ssp elegans), leading us to hypothesize that the bird was a hybrid. However, mtDNA sequences and nuDNA microsatellites proved definitively that the bird was a Red-shouldered Hawk, most likely of eastern origin. This case illustrates that apparent hybrids or apparent vagrants could be individuals with anomalous phenotypes caused by rare genetic variation or novel epigenetic effects.

There is awareness that vultures are the most threatened group of raptors and that they face serious challenges in South-East Asia, Africa and, probably, in Europe. The involvement of the IAF in vulture issues is controversial. There is a link with electrocution risk and various falconers and falconry groups around the world are involved with their conservation. IAF is supporting the involvement of Pakistani falconers in the area of vulture conservation.. Although vultures are frequently not included in birds of prey discussions, the IAF is still anxious to play a supportive role in vulture conservation through lobbying and education. IAF is also deeply concerned about the continued availability and use of Diclofenac in the EU and around the world. IAF has campaigned with MEPs to lobby the European Parliament in order to have it banned within the EU, where it still affects vultures in France, Spain and Italy.. ...

Our wildlife friendly yard is so friendly it harbors a remarkable number of fox squirrels and rabbits. Foxes do frequent the yard every so often, and so do Coopers hawks, but they are primarily bird predators. So while enjoying our lunch, it seemed as if rather few squirrels and birds were around. Then our attention was drawn to activity high above in the crown of a large tulip tree, a mating pair of red-tailed hawks! Nest making activities and mating were ongoing. A couple of pairs of Coopers hawks live not too far away and they often forage in our yard, but the red-tail is not a common urban hawk although quite common outside of town. So how many rabbits does it take to feed a family of red-tailed hawks? Oh, this is quite exciting, and a new bird record for our property. Bye, bye, bunnies! ...
In addition to restaurants along Milford Parkway, many species of sparrows can be found in the fields behind Showcase Cinemas in winter, including White-crowned, Savannah, Field, Song, White-throated, American Tree, and possibly others (a Lincolns here provided only the second record of this species in the history of the Cincinnati CBC). American Kestrels, Red-winged Blackbirds, and Red-tailed Hawks are also found here in winter.

Purpose : The mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR) kinase exists in two distinct complexes, mTORC1 and mTORC2, with only mTORC1 containing the regulatory-associated protein of mTOR (Raptor). mTORC1 is a key regulatory control point of metabolism and protein synthesis. Little is known about the role of mTORC1 in retinal physiology. To determine if mTORC1 is necessary for retinal development the effect of negating mTORC1 function in the embryonic neural retina on visual acuity and retinal anatomy was examined. Methods : Six3cre mice were bred with Rptorf/f mice to cause conditional knockout (cKO) of Raptor expression in the neural retina beginning at approximately embryonic day 9. Six3cre-Rptorf/f mice were compared to Six3cre and to Rptorf/f controls. PCR confirmed Rptor gene editing and qRT-PCR confirmed a decrease of Raptor mRNA expression in whole retinas. Optokinetic response monitoring was used to examine visual acuity at 8 weeks of age. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was used to ...
DID YOU know that Vietnam has massive sand dunes - forming some sort of mini desert in colors of red and golden-white? Theyre found in a place called Mui Ne - a coastal fishing town in the south-central Binh Thuan province, only a few hours drive away from Ho Chi Minh (Saigon). This place was completely out of my radar, but I am so happy to have visited it, thanks to Ford who organized a regional adventure drive to showcase the powerful features of the new, 2020 Ranger Raptor.. The vehicle was first unveiled to the world in a grand launch in Thailand in early 2018, as a performance pickup truck inspired by the success of North Americas gargantuan F-150 Raptor truck. It has since earned itself a massive following and is now a hot-selling product in the Philippines and the entire ASEAN region - being Asia-Pacifics only factory-built performance truck to date.. The Ranger Raptor is the first to use a 2.0-liter bi-turbo diesel engine that spits out 213ps of power and 500Nm of torque. It is mated ...

Ospreys travel as individuals, not in flocks, from wintering grounds in the tropics. A 2014 study published by Mark S. Martell and others in the Journal of Raptor Research, shows that many of our east coast ospreys winter in South America with smaller amounts in Florida or in the Caribbean. As spring approaches, wintering ospreys in South America make a long distance journey past the Gulf of Venezuela and over the Caribbean Sea, a trip of between 400 and 700 miles, to briefly rest in Haiti, Jamaica, or Cuba. Its a tiring flight that typically takes 27 to 40 hours and involves risky nighttime travel. Once across the Caribbean Sea, nearly all ospreys will cross Cuba to the Florida Keys and then northward to breeding grounds. An amazing journey that normally takes two to three weeks from start to finish ...
