JOENCK, Cristian M; ZILIO, Felipe  and  DE MENDONCA-LIMA, André. First record of breeding of the Ornate Hawk-Eagle (Spizaetus ornatus) in Southern Brazil. Hornero [online]. 2011, vol.26, n.2, pp.163-166. ISSN 0073-3407.

We provide the first record of breeding of the Ornate Hawk-Eagle (Spizaetus ornatus) for southern Brazil. In September 2005 a nest was found inside the reservoir of the Barra Grande Hydroelectric Power Station, northern Rio Grande do Sul. On the nest there was a nestling around two months old. Based in prey remains collected on the nest, birds were the main item in diet. This is an endangered species in the Atlantic Rain Forest biome in Brazil and the presence of the nest and nestling offer evidence of reproduction in Southern Brazil.
