We present information from 75 nests of Gray-crowned Tyrannulet (Serpophaga griseiceps) found in open Prosopis woodlands of the central Monte desert between 1995 and 1997 and compare it with information corresponding to other species of the genus. Breeding occurred from October to January. Nests are small open cups. Both parents participated in nest building, which lasted 4-7 days. In the ProsoDis woodland, 98% of the nests were built in chaiiar (Giof froea decorticans), which also is commonly…

Breeding biology of the Yellow-browed Tyrant (Satrapa icterophrys) in south temperate forests of central Argentina

The Yellow-browed Tyrant only nested in native trees close to temporal or permanent water bodies, which highlights the importance of preserving this type of native habitat which is under threat as a result of overexploitation and development.

High nest predation rates found in this habitat and a relatively high diversity of predators appear to impede the presence of “safe” sites for nesting (i.e., there are trade-offs between avoidance strategies).

Comparison of the reproductive biology of two Poospiza Warbling-Finches of Argentina in wet and dry years

The results suggest that interspecific differences in reproductive traits, in particular the unreliable breeding of the Cinnamon Warbling-Finch at Nacunan, may be an evolutionary response to different energetic limitations suffered by these congeneric bird species.

Seasonality of breeding, moult and fat deposition of birds in subtropical lowlands of southern Brazil

The data showed that ultimate factors (photoperiod and temperature) influenced vital processes of the life cycles of birds studied, and the patterns detected in the seasonality and duration of breeding, moult and fat deposition in this community are generally similar to those of birds in temperate zones.

Observations on the Breeding Biology of Passerines in a Seasonally Flooded Savanna in Venezuela

AasraKr.-The breeding biology of passerines was studied in a seasonally inundated savanna in the llanos of western Venezuela. A total of 4 12 nests of 36 species were located, and other evidence of

Nesting success in Brown-and-yellow Marshbirds : Effects of timing, nest site, and brood parasitism

Nesting success of marshbirds was estimated throughout the breeding season and analyzed the effects of brood parasitism and nest-site selection on daily survival rates at different stages of the nesting cycle, finding that nest loss is highest during the brood-rearing stage.

The Nesting Biology of Some Passerines of Buenos Aires, Argentina

Many of the data collected at nests, such as egg size, clutch size, length of incubation and nestling periods, and nest survivorship are among the most fundamental of avian life-history attributes.
