Habitat selection by nocturnal passerine migrants en route: mechanisms and results
Habitat use and habitat selection are essential for successful stopovers. Passerine migrants use habitats in a clearly non-random manner, even if many species utilise a broader range of habitatsExpand

SPATIAL BEHAVIOR OF EUROPEAN ROBINS DURING MIGRATORY STOPOVERS: A TELEMETRY STUDY
Abstract We studied the movement patterns of European Robins (Erithacus rubecula) at stopovers during spring and fall migration on the southeastern Baltic Coast, Russia. On the 1st, and sometimes theExpand

Migratory orientation of first-year white storks (Ciconia ciconia): inherited information and social interactions
SUMMARY We used satellite tracking to study the migratory orientation of juvenile white storks from the population in the Kaliningrad Region (Russia) during their first autumn migration. Two seriesExpand

Proximate causes of avian protandry differ between subspecies with contrasting migration challenges
In many migratory birds, males precede females during migration and arrival at the breeding sites. Three proximate mechanisms are proposed to explain this phenomenon of protandry: males 1) winterExpand

Time of nocturnal departures in European robins, Erithacus rubecula, in relation to celestial cues, season, stopover duration and fat stores
To identify the mechanisms of control of temporal schedule of nocturnal migratory flights in small songbirds in nature, we studied the time of departure in a medium-distance nocturnal migrant, theExpand

Not all songbirds calibrate their magnetic compass from twilight cues: a telemetry study
SUMMARY Migratory birds are able to use the sun and associated polarised light patterns, stellar cues and the geomagnetic field for orientation. No general agreement has been reached regarding theExpand

SEX-RELATED NATAL DISPERSAL OF WHITE STORKS (CICONIA CICONIA) IN POLAND: HOW FAR AND WHERE TO?
Abstract Distance and direction of natal dispersal were studied in a Polish White Stork (Ciconia ciconia) population on the basis of 25 years of banding and resighting data. Multiple regressionExpand

Abstract: Spatial behavior and range of movements at daytime stopovers of three species of passerine nocturnal migrants (European robins, sedge warbler, and pied flycatchers) were studied by radioExpand

Acoustic information as a distant cue for habitat recognition by nocturnally migrating passerines during landfall
During migration, birds must fly over suboptimal habitats differing from those selected during breeding and wintering. Nocturnally migrating passerines need to assess the suitability of potentialExpand
