The Birds from the Early Pleistocene of Ceyssaguet (Lavoute-sur-Loire, Haute-Loire, France): Description of a New Species of the Genus Aquila

Abstract

The Ceyssaguet avifauna includes four taxa, among which a new species of the genus Aquila, dedicated to Claude Guerin. and characterized by a larger size and different proportions from the other species of this genus. It also includes the recent species Phalacrocorax carbo, the Great Cormorant, the presence of which can be explained by the proximity ol' a lake and also of the Loire River. The presence of Accipiter gentilis. the Northern Goshawk, indicates a wooded environment, which agrees well with the results of the pollen analysis.
