FARIAS, Verónica et al. Noteworthy record of Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) in Tehuacán-Cuicatlán Biosphere Reserve, Puebla, Mexico. Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2016, vol.87, n.3, pp.1153-1158. ISSN 2007-8706.

We report Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) presence by means of the southernmost photographic record in the state of Puebla within the Tehuacán-Cuicatlán Biosphere Reserve. Tropical dry forest and xerophilous scrub in the reserve are vegetation types with favorable environmental conditions for the presence of Golden Eagle; therefore, it is proposed that the Tehuacán-Cuicatlán Biosphere Reserve should be considered as part of the distribution area of this bird of prey. It is suggested also that training of rural communities for sighting recognition and registration would allow obtaining information to determine if eagles are present in the reserve throughout the year or during their migration.
