We conducted a capture-recapture study on the population size and trends of the Ashy Storm-petrel (Oceanodroma homochroa) on Southeast Farallon Island (SEFI), California, based upon data collected in 1971, 1972, and 1992. From March through August, birds were lured to fixed-site sampling locations using taped vocalization playback. Using program JOLLY, we estimated population size and evaluated statistical models using goodness-of-fit and Likelihood Ratio tests. On the southwestern slope of… Expand

Seabirds as part of migratory owl diet on Southeast Farallon Island, California
The introduction of non-native mammals is often a primary factor in the decline or extirpation of seabird populations on islands worldwide (Croxall et al. 2012). The Farallon Islands (hereafter,Expand

Unlike many species of seabirds that use the Salish Sea (Puget Sound, Georgia Basin and Strait of Juan de Fuca) during migration or for over-wintering, rhinoceros auklets (Cerorhinca monocerata)Expand
Ashy Storm-Petrel Oceanodroma homochroa mist-netting and capture rates in the California Channel Islands, 2004-2007
The Ashy Storm-Petrel Oceanodroma homochroa (ASSP) is endemic to the California Current System (CCS) and nests only on Californian islands, islets and rocks (including the Pacific coast of northernExpand
REPRODUCTIVE PERFORMANCE OF ASHY STORM-PETRELS (OCEANODROMA HOMOCHROA) AT SANTA CRUZ ISLAND, CALIFORNIA, IN 1995-2007
In 1995-1998 and 2005-2007, reproductive performance of the ashy storm-petrel (Oceanodroma homochroa) was measured at four sea caves and one offshore rock at Santa Cruz Island, California. InExpand
NESTING OF ASHY STORM-PETRELS AND CASSlN ' S AUK !-hTS IN MONTEREY COUNTY , CALIFORNIA
We report the first known nesting of the Ashy Storm-Petrel and Cassin's Auklet in Monterey County, California, on offshore rocks around Castle Rock and Hurricane Point. Four nests and 13 mist-nettedExpand
Storm-petrels of the Eastern Pacific Ocean: Species Assembly and Diversity along Marine Habitat Gradients
from about 50°N to 50°S and out along the equator, are 26 distinct taxa of storm-petrels (Hydrobatidae), a diversity far greater for this group than in any equivalent stretch of the world ocean. WeExpand
Range-wide conservation and science of the Ashy Storm-Petrel Oceanodroma homochroa
The Ashy Storm-Petrel Oceanodroma homochroa (hereafter, ASSP) is endemic to the California Current System (CCS) and breeds among the limited number of islands and coastal rocks available along theExpand
A Model Approach for Estimating Colony Size, Trends, and Habitat Associations of Burrow-Nesting Seabirds
TLDR
A prototype monitoring strategy for estimating the density and number of occupied burrows of burrow-nesting seabirds at single- or multi-island scales is presented and suggests that the Salish Sea population has increased, despite greater human effects on that ecosystem. Expand
Recapture processes and biological inference in monitoring burrow-nesting seabirds
TLDR
It was found that the recapture probability varied over time and among methodologies, and the differences found in survival seem to depend on the biological variability between sites (e.g. predation pressure), and not on the recaptures methods. Expand
Predictive habitat modelling for the population census of a burrowing seabird : A study of the endangered cook's petrel
Abstract Inaccurate population data remain a major problem in the conservation of burrow-nesting Procellariiform seabirds. We evaluated the potential of predictive habitat modelling, in contrast withExpand
