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)

Subspecific Identification of the Willet Catoptrophorus semipalmatus

Different migration strategies used by two inland wader species during autumn migration, case of Wood Sandpiper Tringa glareola and Common Snipe Gallinago gallinago

Wood Sandpiper (Tringa glareola) Science Article 2 abstract Waders generally follow two alternative strategies.The ‘B-strategy’ or ‘energy minimization’ strategy is to initiate migration late in the season, start moulting at the breeding grounds and migrate slowly in small steps, whereas the ‘S-strategy’ or ‘time minimization’istomigrateimmediatelyaftertheendofthebreedingperiodandmoulton the wintering grounds after a migration with only a few […]

Trap response of Wood Sandpipers Tringa glareola.

Wood Sandpiper (Tringa glareola) Science Article 3 abstract We used sightings and recaptures of colour-markedWood Sandpipers to examine the trapresponse of this locally abundant migrant in north-east Austria. Birds were caught in selectedwastewater pools of the local sugar factory using walk-in traps. According toresightings and recaptures, most birds apparently left the initial trapping site soon […]

Interactive effects of time and vegetation on reproductionof redshanks ( Tringa totanus) breeding in Wadden Sea salt marshes

Redshank (Tringa totanus) Science Article 1 abstract As shown for various species, nesting waders are non-randomly distributed on wetlands and preferentially select riparian nest-sites adjacent to limnic or marine waterbodies. Studying the redshank Tringa totanus, we tested the hypotheses that, in a coastal wader species which conceals its clutch in vegetation, predation and hatching success […]

Trematode parasitism as a possible factor in over-summering of Greater Yellowlegs (Tringa melanoleuca)

Greater Yellowlegs (Tringa melanoleuca) Science Article 1 abstract The possible relationship between trematode infestation and over-summering was explored in Greater Yellowlegs (ninga melanoleuca). Birds were collected throughout the year in coastal Venezuela to examine seasonal and age-related variation in digenean trematode infestations. Yellowlegs were infested with eleven digenean genera. Only four genera were common to […]
