Reliable estimates of survival rates of southern African bird species are still rare. Yet precise information on life history traits of birds from this southern Mediterranean-type climate would help in evaluating the generality of global patterns of avian life history. We estimated annual survival of Cape Sugarbirds Promerops cafer at a breeding site and a non-breeding site, using capture-mark-recapture methods. Consistent between the two sites, annual survival was 0.54 for females and 0.64 for… 
Prediction of mean adult survival rates of southern African birds from demographic and ecological covariates
TLDR
Clutch size and body mass were the most influential covariates, both with and without the inclusion of phylogenetic effects, and a regression model including only these two variables performed well in both of the validation tests.
The effects of colony dynamics and climate on a declining population of sociable weavers, Phlietairus Socius
This study was conducted in order to investigate the potential reasons for population decline in colonial birds in semi-arid environments by looking at the role that colony dynamics and climatic
Life history and environmental correlates of survival rates in tropical birds
TLDR
This dissertation presents a meta-analysis of global avian survival across species and latitude and concludes that environmental variability and the use of climate gradients in life-history studies should be considered as a parameter for survival estimates.

Territoriality and breeding success in the Cape Sugarbird (Promerops cafer)
TLDR
Cape Sugarbirds are sexually dimorphic with respect to tail length and wing ornament size, but the size of neither ornament correlated to male territory size, female fecundity or fledgling success, and female Cape Sugarbirds appear to base mate choice on the size and quality of the males’ territories rather than on the Size of the Males’ secondary sexual characteristics.
Territoriality of Cape Sugarbirds (Promerops cafer) between and within breeding seasons
Cape Sugarbirds are southern African endemics, found in fynbos vegetation of the Western and Eastern Cape Provinces of South Africa, and they feed almost exclusively on the nectar of Protea
Survival Rates of Tropical and Temperate Passerines: A Trinidadian Perspective
TLDR
Mark‐recapture data collected using mist nets over a 10‐yr period in Trinidad lent support to the hypothesis that avian survival rates are higher in the humid tropics, although the magnitude of the difference may be smaller than previously suggested.
Do southern African songbirds live longer than their European counterparts
TLDR
Among African songbirds there was a strong negative correlation between adult survival and clutch size with granivores laying relatively large clutches and living relatively short lives, hypothesize that these differing life history trade-offs reflect variation in the seasonality of food resources whereby survival rates of northern temperate songbirds may be limited by food availability and cold weather during winter, while survival of southern African granivore may belimited by the influence of a variable and unpredictable rainfall regime on seed availability.
JUVENILE AND ADULT SURVIVAL IN THE SOCIABLE WEAVER (PHILETAIRUS SOCIUS), A SOUTHERN-TEMPERATE COLONIAL COOPERATIVE BREEDER IN AFRICA
TLDR
Relatively high survival rates in Sociable Weavers probably result from a benign climate and easy access to food in winter, and may also be enhanced by prolonged parental care and delayed dispersal.
Survival Rates of Birds of Tropical and Temperate Forests: Will the Dogma Survive?
TLDR
This work provides the first detailed comparison of survival rates of tropical and temperate forest birds based on extensive data bases and modern capture-recapture models and finds no support for the conventional wisdom.

Clutch Size, Nesting Success, and Predation on Nests of Neotropical Birds, Reviewed
TLDR
Failure to find consistent correlation between clutch size and number of nest attendants, diet, habitat, or type of nest leads us to seek some factor, or factors, that profoundly influence the reproduction of most birds of the humid neotropics.
Evolution of Clutch Size in Tropical Species of Birds
TLDR
The theory seems to offer explanations for several lingering problems, and patterns of clutch size variation cannot be understood without considering differences in survivorship schedules, ages of first and last reproduction, and the number of broods reared by parents during the breeding season.
