ARANDA, Marcelo; BURTON, Andrew; INIGO-ELIAS, Eduardo  y  ESCALANTE, Patricia. A new record for the Ornate Hawk-Eagle (Spizaetus ornatus) in the Sierra Manantlán Biosphere Reserve, Jalisco-Colima, Mexico. Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2009, vol.80, n.1, pp. 265-268. ISSN 2007-8706.

An immature Ornate Hawk-Eagle (Spizaetus ornatus) was observed and photographed while perched in pine-oak forest in the Sierra de Manantlán Biosphere Reserve, Jalisco-Colima, Mexico. From plumage characteristics we believe the eagle to be 2-3 years old. This record is significant due to the paucity of records for this species in Western Mexico: Nayarit (1) Colima (3), Jalisco (1) and Guerrero (1). The Ornate Hawk-Eagle is considered as a threatened species in Mexico, and this record from a natural protected area brings hope for its conservation.

Palabras llave : Ornate Hawk-Eagle; distribution; Western México.
