New records of Miocene fossil birds of prey from western Kenya

Walker, C.A. and Dyke, Gareth J. (2006) New records of Miocene fossil birds of prey from western Kenya Historical Biology, 18, (3), pp. 91-94. (doi:10.1080/08912960600639434).

Record type: Article


We describe new fossil records of three diurnal birds of prey and an owl from four Miocene sites in western Kenya. All four new records are very similar to recent species present today in Kenya and include a vulture (cf. Aegypius monachus), a Goshawk (cf. Accipter tachiro) and a Chanting Goshawk (cf. Melierax metabates/canorus) as well as a small owl (cf. Otus senegalensis). All four new fossil taxa may represent the earliest known records for these genera.
