The use of anthropogenic debris as nesting material by the greater thornbird, an inland–wetland-associated bird of South America

TLDR
It is suggested that the greater thornbird, a bird species preferably nesting in river floodplain wetlands in South America, has the potential to indicate vulnerable areas to plastic pollution associated with urban waste mismanagement.

Characterization of anthropogenic materials on yellow-legged gull (Larus michahellis) nests breeding in natural and urban sites along the coast of Portugal

TLDR
The quantity and diversity of anthropogenic materials incorporated in gull nests from urban locations indicate a need for improved debris management in urban settlements.

Marginal presence of plastic in nests of yellow–legged gulls (Larus michahellis) in the southeastern Bay of Biscay. Nest entanglement and consumption of plastics can be a cause of mortality in chicks

Incidence and types of plastic in gannets' nests in the northwest Atlantic

TLDR
Present levels of the occurrence of plastic in nests at other gannetries should be assessed, because the relative abundances of different types of debris in nests could be used as mega- and meso-scale indicators of synthetic materials in different oceanograph...

Lost and discarded marine debris, particularly items made of persistent synthetic materials, is now recognized as a major form of marine pollution. This perception was a seminal finding of the 1984
