Red-necked Phalaropes breed in Holarctic regions and winter in tropical and southern coastal regions around the world (Dement'ev and Gladkov 1951c, Cramp and Simmons 1983, Higgins and Davies 1996, AOU 1998). They migrate primarily just off continental coastlines and are thus rare in the central Pacific; e.g., the first record for Micronesia occurred in 1999 (Wiles et al. 2000) and the second in 2006 (Pratt et al. 2010). In the Hawaiian Islands they are rare vagrants and winter visitors. Because… 

Threatened habitat at Great Salt Lake: Importance of shallow-water and brackish habitats to Wilson's and Red-necked phalaropes

ABSTRACT Great Salt Lake (GSL) is the largest hypersaline lake in North America and is the fall staging area for a high proportion of North America's Wilson's Phalaropes (Phalaropus tricolor) and

Investigating the influence of the extreme Indian Ocean Dipole on the 2020 influx of Red-necked Phalaropes Phalaropus lobatus in Kenya

Ocean currents have wide-ranging impacts on seabird movement and survival. By extension, the extreme oscillations they are subject to, such as extreme Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) events, can also be

Annual adult survival drives trends in Arctic-breeding shorebirds but knowledge gaps in other vital rates remain

ABSTRACT Conservation status and management priorities are often informed by population trends. Trend estimates can be derived from population surveys or models, but both methods are associated with

Plastic ingestion by seabirds in the circumpolar Arctic: a review

Plastic pollution is a ubiquitous global environmental problem. Plastic ingestion by seabirds is an increasing issue even in remote areas, such as the Arctic, yet research and monitoring of plastic...

Correspondence between mercury and stable isotopes in high Arctic marine and terrestrial avian species from northwest Greenland

Birds are useful bioindicators of environmental contamination around the globe, but avian studies in the high Arctic have been primarily limited to a few abundant species. This study was designed to
