Notes on the feeding habits of the Red-eyed dove,(streptopelia semitorquata) in a Peri- urban area in Rhodesia by Reay H. N. Smithers, National Monument of Rhodesia.

In order to feed a Lanner falcon, Falco biarmicus, it was necessary to provide a diet containing roughage in the form of the feathered carcasses. The red eyed dove was common and readily available throughout the year and was generally used.
