          Abstract

          We provide the first record of breeding of the Ornate Hawk-Eagle (Spizaetus ornatus) for southern Brazil. In September 2005 a nest was found inside the reservoir of the Barra Grande Hydroelectric Power Station, northern Rio Grande do Sul. On the nest there was a nestling around two months old. Based in prey remains collected on the nest, birds were the main item in diet. This is an endangered species in the Atlantic Rain Forest biome in Brazil and the presence of the nest and nestling offer evidence of reproduction in Southern Brazil.

          Primer registro de cría del Águila Crestuda Real (Spizaetus ornatus) en el sur de Brasil.- Se presenta el primer registro de cría del Águila Crestuda Real (Spizaetus ornatus) en el sur de Brasil. Se encontró un nido en septiembre de 2005 en el embalse de la usina hidroeléctrica Barra Grande, en el norte de Rio Grande do Sul. En el nido había un pichón de unos dos meses de edad. Sobre la base de los restos de presas encontrados en el nido, las aves eran los principales ítems en la dieta. Esta especie se encuentra en peligro de extinción en el Bosque Atlántico en Brasil y la presencia del nido y el pichón ofrece pruebas de la reproducción de la especie en el sur de Brasil.
