    Nesting abundance, habitat characteristics, and potential threats were identified in the colony of waterbirds at Tivives (Esparza, Costa Rica) during a reproductive period (2012). This field study consisted in observing birds one day per month for one year (March 2012 - March 2013); the average...

    The Great Blue Heron Ardea herodias fannini Chapman, 1901 in the Pacific northwest appears to have modified nesting behaviour in response to the strong recent recovery of the Bald Eagle ( Haliaeetus leucocephalus (L., 1766)) population. Previously undescribed, herons now often nest in close...

    In this study we have investigated the behaviors of the Little Egret and Night Heron during the breeding season at Poyrazlar Lake (SAKARYA) located in North-West Turkey (40°50'N, 30°28'E). The Ardeid colony consists of 330 adults; 150 of which are Night Heron (45.45%) and 180 are Little...

    The density-dependent processes that limit the colony size of colonially breeding birds such as herons and egrets remain unclear, because it is difficult to monitor colonies from the first year of their establishment, and the most previous studies have considered mixed-species colonies. In the...
