Gebruik van voorraadkamers door broedende Boomvalken Falco subbuteo op Voorne-Putten tussen 2016 en 2019
De Takkeling , Volume 29 - Issue 2 p. 162- 168
During observations at two nest sites in electricity pylons in polders in Voorne-Putten (western Netherlands, 2016-2020), food caching was frequently recorded or suspected during the nestling and post-fledging stages of the breeding cycle (at least 15 times). In one instance, the male brought three prey items within 50 minutes of time, of which a single one was fed to a chick, the rest stored. Just minutes later, a fourth prey item was retrieved by the female from a cache in a nearby tree. All other cached prey items were stored on a electricity pylon.
