Migration is known to be a bottleneck in the annual cycle of many birds, and its success can depend on the availability of stopovers along the migration route. Satellite tracking was used to identify migratory strategies and important stopovers in 16 Black Storks (Ciconia nigra) during their autumn and spring migrations between European breeding areas and West African wintering sites. Some birds migrate without using stopovers, whereas others need to stop at least once during their migration: 1… Expand

Post-Breeding Movements of Iberian Black Storks Ciconia nigra as Revealed by Satellite Tracking
TLDR
The tagged Iberian black storks show large-scale migration routes similar to other European populations, according to adaptive kernels, and are explored to define the size and structure of the home ranges before migrating via the Strait of Gibraltar. Expand
Migration and winter distribution of Iberian and central European black storksCiconia nigramoving to Africa across the Strait of Gibraltar: a comparative study
TLDR
This paper compares the migratory movements of Iberian and central European satellite-tagged black storks Ciconia nigra moving to Africa across the Strait of Gibraltar to suggest that the parallel distribution of breeding and wintering areas results from posterior rearrangements of the two populations crossing Gibraltar.

Importance of the connectivity of Spanish stopovers for Black Storks
Capsule Sixteen Black Storks (Ciconia nigra) were tracked by satellite during their autumnal and spring migrations in order to identify their major stopover sites and connections between stopovers inExpand

Summer pre-breeding movements of Eleonora’s Falcon Falco eleonorae revealed by satellite telemetry: implications for conservation
Summary Recent advances in bird tracking technologies are revealing that migratory birds use temporal staging sites other than breeding and wintering areas, and these areas deserve conservationExpand
Heterogeneity in migration strategies of Whooping Cranes
ABSTRACT Migratory birds use numerous strategies to successfully complete twice-annual movements between breeding and wintering sites. Context for conservation and management can be provided byExpand
Individual variability in the migratory path and stopovers of a long-distance pelagic migrant
The analysis of repeated journeys of the same individuals is becoming an important tool in the study of animal migration. This approach has been used to analyse the migratory consistency (inExpand
Traditional Fish Pond Management Provides Reliable Foraging Opportunities for Migrating Black Storks in Romania
Migrant water birds such as Black Storks Ciconia nigra have progressively started capitalizing on man-managed ecosystems during migration. Behavioural and ecological studies at stopovers are thus keyExpand
Conservation of Iberian Black Storks Ciconia nigra outside breeding areas: distribution, movements and mortality
Summary Seven out of ten Black Stork chicks fitted with satellite tags successfully made the journey from Iberia to the Sahel. Four died there during their first winter and one additional bird in theExpand
Insights into the phenology of migration and survival of a long migrant land bird
TLDR
It is shown that departure for migration depended on age in the fall with juveniles being the first to leave and on age and sex in the spring with juveniles departing later and males induced to arrive early in spring to secure high-quality territories. Expand

Stopover duration of Palearctic passerine migrants in the western Sahara - : independent of fat stores?
TLDR
The application of capture-recapture models revealed that during autumn migration at the coast the proportion of transients was relatively high in three out of four species investigated and stopover duration was short, which cannot confirm the assumption that birds arriving at stopover sites in the desert with low fat loads stay longer than birds that arrive with high fat loads.

A ten-year study of the stopover patterns of migratory passerines during fall migration on Appledore Island, Maine
TLDR
This study examined the autumnal stopover patterns of migratory passerines on Appledore Island, Maine, from 1983 to 1992 to find young birds were more prevalent than adults in all species studied and Northern Waterthrushes exhibited significant differences in recaptures and mass increases among years.

Variation in survivorship of a migratory songbird throughout its annual cycle
TLDR
Seasonal and annual survival estimates from resightings of colour-ringed individuals on breeding grounds in New Hampshire, USA and on winter quarters in Jamaica, West Indies from 1986 to 1999 were used to calculate warbler survival for the migratory periods. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that knowledge of intraspecific variation in mi- gration strategies is important for effective management of stopover habitats for migratory songbirds. Expand

Variation in the stopover duration of Reed Warblers Acrocephalus scirpaceus in Morocco: effects of season, age and site
TLDR
Estimation of stopover duration in the Reed Warbler Acrocephalus scirpaceus showed effects of age and site on stopover parameters during autumn and spring migration was longer for juveniles than for adults, longer at the Atlantic site than at the Mediterranean site and longer in autumn than in spring.

Site fidelity and survival differences between two groups of new world red knots (Calidris canutus)
TLDR
The higher survival of individuals from the smaller Florida group, which presumably migrates a much shorter distance than the Argentina birds, runs counter to current evolutionary theories on the benefits of migration, which recognize that selection for a migratory phenotype should be driven by increased fitness.

AGE-SPECIFIC STOPOVER BEHAVIOR OF MIGRANT BALD EAGLES
TLDR
Stopover behavior of Bald Eagles supported the hypothesis that large species are less sensitive than small species to body condition and consumption rates during migration, and suggested that experience modified stopover behavior. Expand
