Standardized North American Marsh Bird Monitoring Protocol
Abstract. Little is known about the population status of many marsh-dependent birds in North America but recent efforts have focused on collecting more reliable information and estimates ofExpand

Effects of ambient temperature on avian incubation behavior
Ambient temperature is commonly thought to influence avian incubation behavior. However, results of empirical studies examining correlations between ambient temperature and bout duration areExpand

Comparison of detection probability associated with burrowing owl survey methods
Populations of western burrowing owls (Athene cunicularia hypugaea) appear to have declined in many portions of their range. A standardized survey and monitoring program is not available to quantifyExpand

EFFECTIVENESS OF CALL-BROADCAST SURVEYS FOR MONITORING MARSH BIRDS
Abstract Many species of marsh birds (e.g. rails and bitterns) are believed to be declining in North America, yet we lack an effective monitoring program to estimate their population trends.Expand

Why Migrate? A Test of the Evolutionary Precursor Hypothesis
The question of why birds migrate is still poorly understood despite decades of debate. Previous studies have suggested that use of edge habitats and a frugivorous diet are precursors to theExpand

Comparative demography of Burrowing Owls in agricultural and urban landscapes in southeastern Washington
Anecdotal evidence suggests that Burrowing Owls have declined in the state of Washington. We examined the status of these owls in agricultural and urban habitats to better understand the underlyingExpand

FACTORS AFFECTING DETECTION PROBABILITY OF CALIFORNIA BLACK RAILS
Abstract Optimal survey methods for estimating population trends are those that result in high detection probability and low temporal variance in detection probability. We compared detectionExpand

Evaluation of Lipid Indices of the Wood Thrush
Many techniques for assessing lipid reserves have been used, but techniques are seldom evaluated. We evaluated five common methods (fat scoring, regression residuals of body mass vs. morphologicalExpand
