ResumenThe Eleonora's Falcon is a cliff-nesting raptor that breeds on isolated small islands adjusting its breeding season to coincide with the post-breeding autumn migration of its small passerine prey migrating over the sea, between late August and early October. Two adult female Eleonora's Falcons were equipped with Argos satellite transmitters during the chick-rearing period in Morocco giving the opportunity to study the ranging behaviour of the species during at least a part of the breeding season. Results showed that the falcons spent most of the time at sea during mornings, stayed mainly inland during afternoons, and rested in the colony during nights. Interestingly, although most distances were recorded shorter than 50 km away from the colony, movements took also place to areas located more than 100 km away. Locating and protecting these inland areas used for resting and foraging may be of interest for the conservation of the species in order to avoid perturbations such as poisoning and habitat destruction.
