Conserving migratory land birds in the new world: do we know enough?
Migratory bird needs must be met during four phases of the year: breeding season, fall migration, wintering, and spring migration; thus, management may be needed during all four phases. The bulk ofExpand

Long-Distance Bird Migration within South America Revealed by Light-Level Geolocators
ABSTRACT. Little is known about the timing of migration, migration routes, and migratory connectivity of most of the >230 species of birds that breed at south temperate latitudes of South AmericaExpand

An overview of migratory birds in Brazil
We reviewed the occurrences and distributional patterns of migratory species of birds in Brazil. A species was classified as migratory when at least part of its population performs cyclical, seasonalExpand

Drivers of clutch-size in Fork-tailed Flycatchers (Tyrannus savana) at temperate and tropical latitudes in South America
Abstract Many species of birds exhibit a latitudinal gradient in annual reproductive investment, laying more eggs and producing more nestlings at higher latitudes. However, few studies have evaluatedExpand

First Documented Migration of Individual White-Crested Elaenias (Elaenia albiceps chilensis) in South America
ABSTRACT Few details are available on the migration (rates, routes, dates) of Neotropical austral migrant birds, which breed and migrate wholly within South America. Only one long-distance australExpand
