The Rufous-tailed Hawk (Buteo ventralis) is a large forest-specialist raptor inhabiting low to middle elevation forests in southern Argentina and Chile. Up to now, all nests described have been placed on large live trees, excepting two reports of nesting on rocky walls surrounded by forests. We reported for the first time the use of standing dead trees as a nesting substrate by the Rufous-tailed Hawk.
