Resumen:
We report the first record of nesting of the Rufous-tailed Hawk (Buteo ventralis Gould) on a rocky substrate. The nest was recorded in southern Chile, on the west coast of South America. It was a platform 50 cm wide and 80 cm high, built with branches of the roble (Nothofagus obliqua), on a rocky wall about 30 m above the ground.
