Observations on the migration of raptors were carried out during two periods in September 1968 and September-October 1969 in the Lebanon, mostly from a village in the mountains north of Beirut. Twenty-four species were seen, and large numbers of the following were noted: Aquila pomarina (both periods), Pernis apivorus (Sept. 1968) and Accipiter brevipes (Sept. 1968). Details on each species are given in a systematic list. Many species were in accordance with recent observations from the Bosphorus, and large proportions had no doubt passed this way, but there was evidence of contributions from birds coming east of the Black Sea. The migration pattern of Aquilae is discussed, and it is suggested that rapax and heliaca are closely related.
