We examined the dimensions, nearest-neighbor distance, density, vegetation cover, shelter, and substrate of nest cavities in a multispecific colony of Procellariiformes: Cory's Shearwater (Calonectris diomedea), Little Shearwater (Puffinus assimilis), Bulwer's Petrel (Bulweria bulwerii), and Band-rumped Storm-Petrel (Oceanodroma castro). We investigated differences in nest cavity dimensions between species, the influence of nest cavity characteristics on hatching success of Cory's Shearwater… CONTINUE READING
