Abstract

During a short survey of the diurnal raptor community on the island of Nias in July 1992,I found. seven species of Falconiformes. Three of them were hawk-eagles: Spizaelus alboniger last confirmed in 1886, S. nanus, presumed to be extinct and S. cirrhatus, never cited for the island. These three eagles appeared to be highly endangered because of heavy deforestation but the future of the other raptor species seems more secure
