--The chronology of nesting events was examined in Western Sandpipers (Ca/idris mauri) and Semipalmated Sandpipers (C. pusilia) breeding at Nome, Alaska. The duration of laying (5 d for a 4-egg clutch) and hatching (53.0 -+ 26.6 SD h, dry chicks to emerge from star-pipped eggs) was similar for both species. Laying rates of Semipalmated Sandpipers at Nome were slower than other populations, possibly because laying intervals were greater than 30 h. Length of incubation was significantly longer in… CONTINUE READING
