Colony Connectivity and the Rapid Growth of a Caspian Tern (Hydroprogne caspia) Colony on Alaska's Copper River Delta, USA
Abstract. North America's northernmost, sizable colony of Caspian Terns (Hydroprogne caspia) is located on the Copper River Delta of south-central Alaska, USA. The colony was monitored in June during
Top-Down and Bottom-Up Interactions Influence Fledging Success at North America’s Largest Colony of Caspian Terns (Hydroprogne caspia)
TLDR
The hypothesis that the decline in Caspian tern fledging success at this large estuarine colony was primarily driven by the interaction of bottom-up and top-down factors, influencing tern fleeging success through the food supply and triggering potential predators to identify the tern breeding colony as an alternative source of prey is supported.
Demographics of Piscivorous Colonial Waterbirds and Management Implications for ESA-listed Salmonids on the Columbia Plateau
TLDR
Investigation of colony size, productivity, and limiting factors for five piscivorous waterbird species nesting at 18 locations on the Columbia Plateau (Washington) during 2004-2010 found little reason to project increased impacts to juvenile salmonid survival from tern and cormorant populations.
