Subspecific Identification of the Willet Catoptrophorus semipalmatus

Willet (Catoptrophorus semipalmatus) Science Article 3 abstract The Willet is a familiar shorebird to many birders around temperate regions of North, Central, and South America. Its large size, drab plumage, and flashy wing pattern make it relatively straightforward to identify Michael O’Brien, BIRDING MAY/JUNE 2 0 0 6 Download article download full text (pdf)

Predator avoidance behaviour of a solitary Willet attacked by a Peregrine Falcon

Willet (Catoptrophorus semipalmatus) Science Article 2 abstract During the non-breeding season, Willets Catoptrophorus semipalmatus use a variety of tactics to avoid predators and have been reported to take flight, submerge themselves inwater, and hide in or near marsh vegetation JOSEPH B.

Social Organization In A Nesting Population Of Eastern Willets (Catoptrophorus Semipalmatus)

Willet (Catoptrophorus semipalmatus) Science Article 1 abstract The breeding ecology of eastern Willets (Catoptrophorus semipalmatus) was studied over a 3-yr period in a salt marsh on the Atlantic coast of Virginia. During the study,171 adults were color-marked MARSHALL A. HOWE, The Auk 99: 88-102. January 1982 Download article download full text (pdf)

Egg specific gravity and incubation in the Sooty Tern and Brown Noddy.

Sooty Tern (Sterna fuscata) Science Article 11 abstract Flotation characteristics of birds’ eggs are commonly used to estimate their age. Schreiber (1970) and Hays and LeCroy (1971) have recently attempted to quantify the relationship between the appearance (degree of emergence and position) larid eggs placed in water and the age of the eggs. Westerskov (1950) […]

Oxygen Consumption and Organ Growth in Sooty Tern (Sterna Fuscata) Embryos

Sooty Tern (Sterna fuscata) Science Article 2 abstract A previous report (Zhang and Whittow 1992) described the patterns of embryonic oxygen consumption and organ growth in the Wedge-tailed Shearwater (Puffinusp acificusI)n. the presents tudy, similar data were obtained for the Sooty Tern. There are some similaritiesb etween the eggso f the two species. The sequence […]

Sooty tern nesting success as a function of nest location, density and vegetationtype in a neotropical atoll

Sooty Tern (Sterna fuscata) Science Article 10 abstract Nest density and reproductive success are used as indicators of habitat preference by animals. However, isolated treatment of these factors may be misleading. We studied habitat selection by Sooty Terns (Sterna fuscata) in an atoll in Brazil, composed of Farol and Cemiterio Islands. The islands were used […]

New Zealand-banded Sooty Tern (Sterna fuscata) breeds in the Seychelles

Sooty Tern (Sterna fuscata) Science Article 3 abstract Over 14 600 Sooty Terns (Sterna fuscata serrata) have been banded underthe New Zealand National Banding Scheme. The great majority of themwas banded between 1961 and 1969 by Civil Aviation staff stationed on RaoulIsland in the Kermadec group (29O 15’S, 177O 55′ W) and during theOrnithological Society […]

Colony Visitation Behavior And Breeding Ages Of Sooty Terns (Sterna Fuscata)

Sooty Tern (Sterna fuscata) Science Article 7 abstract The apparent regulation of population size in seabirds has been a topic of recent research by several ornithologists (e.g. Ashmole, 1963b; Harris, 1969a, b, c; Nelson, 1965, 1966, 1969a, b; Rowan 1965; and Lack, 1968). These authors theorize that major limiting factors are either availability of food […]

Challenges and prospects of population genetic studies in terns(Charadriiformes, Aves)

Sooty Tern (Sterna fuscata) Science Article 8 abstract Little information is available about the population structure of communally nesting terns (Sternidae) and skimmers(Rynchopidae) throughout the world. In order to fill this gap, a survey of molecular markers was carried out for sixspecies of terns (Anous stolidus, Sterna hirundinacea, S. fuscata, S. superciliaris, Thalasseus maximus andPhaetusa […]
