HABITAT SPECIFIC BEHAVIOR OF THE PARAKEETAUKLET IN THE BARREN ISLANDS, ALASKA

Parakeet Auklet (aethia psittacula) Science Article 1 abstract We are not aware of any published accounts of the behavior of the Parakeet Auklet. Previous studies of this species have centered on its ecology in the Bering Sea (Bedard 1969a, 1969b, Sealy 1968, Sealy and Bedard 1973). Our intent is to discuss and relate the basic […]

Comparative foraging ecology of planktivorous auklets in relation to ocean physics and prey availability

Parakeet Auklet (aethia psittacula) Science Article 2 abstract tested the hypothesis that the spatial distributions of foraging least, crested and parakeet auklets (aethia pusilla, A. cristatella and A. psittacula, respectively) in the shallow passes of the Aleutian Islands would be determined by physical mechanisms that control near-surface prey concentrations. We recorded currents using an Acoustic […]
