First evidence of phenological change in a transcontinental migrant overwintering in the Indian sub-continent: the Red-breasted Flycatcher Ficedula parva

Red-breasted Flycatcher (Ficedula parva) Science Article 3 abstract We analysed data on the Red-breasted Flycatcher Ficedula parva collected in old- growth, oak-hornbeam stands in the primeval Forest, Poland during 1973- 2002. In this period, the Red-breasted Flycatcher’s return to its breeding sites became sig nificantly earlier whilst population size did not change significantly. We show […]

Is the later arrival of young male red-breasted flycatchers ( Ficedula parva ) related to their physical condition?

Red-breasted Flycatcher (Ficedula parva) Science Article 2 abstract Intraspecific variation in the arrival time of migratory birds to breeding grounds is common. Although this phenomenon has been explained in various ways, the condition-dependency of arrival is often evoked. I analyzed the arrival time of male red-breasted flycatchers Ficedula parva, a long-distance migratory passerine, in relation […]

The influence of male age and phenology on reproductive success of the red-breasted flycatcher (Ficedula parva)

Red-breasted Flycatcher (Ficedula parva) Science Article 1 abstract I studied arrival time, breeding phenology, and breeding success in relation to the age class (second year and older) of male red-breasted flycatchers for six breeding seasons (2000-2005) in the prim val Bialowieza Forest, eastern Poland. Older males, i.e. older than two years (ASY), arrived on average […]

Niche partitioning of two Palearctic passerinemigrants with Afrotropical residents in theirWest African winter quarters

Pied Flycatcher (Ficedula hypoleuca) Science Article 5 abstract In bird migration systems, the question of coexistence and competition of migrants with residents in the nonbreeding season andtheir role in shaping the evolution of present avian communities is much debated. However, conclusions are often drawn ina speculative way. In the Palearctic-African bird migration system, many studies […]

Do parasitic mites decrease growth of nestling Pied Flycatchers Ficedula hypoleuca?

Pied Flycatcher (Ficedula hypoleuca) Science Article 10 abstract The effect of a parasitic mite Dermanyssus hirundinis on the growth and survival of nestling Pied Flycatcher Ficedula hypoleuca was tested by an experiment where the parasite level was reduced in half of the nest boxes using an insecticide, Although the abundance of mites was significantly reduced […]

Provisioning response to manipulation of apparent predation danger by parental Pied Flycatchers

Pied Flycatcher (Ficedula hypoleuca) Science Article 3 abstract We tested whether nest visitation rate of parent pied Flycatch ers (Ficedula hypoleuca) is decreased by an experimentally increased predation risk. We simulated predation risk by placing a stuffed Pygmy Owl (Glaucidium passerinzm) in the nest vicinity and by playback of pygmy owl’s whistling. We used Blackbird […]

From mating to laying: genetic and environmental variation in mating dates and prelaying periods of female pied flycatchers Ficedula hypoleuca

Pied Flycatcher (Ficedula hypoleuca) Science Article 2 abstract The duration of the period comprised between mating and the onset of laying and its correlates and consequences for aspects of female breeding performance are investigated in a population of pied flycatchers studied for 5 years. That duration may represent a compromise between the selective pressure on […]
