Predation of artificial ground nests in Australian tropical savannas: inverse edge effects

Depredation of artificial ground nests was examined in tropical savanna in northern Australia to assess potential predation pressures on nests of the partridge pigeon (Geophaps smithii), a declining tropical granivore. Predation rates were examined at two sites, Kakadu National Park (which supported a relatively high density of partridge pigeons) and Berry Springs (which had greater […]

Productivity and mortality of mohua (Mohoua ochrocephala)

Mohua (Mohoua ochrocephala) breeding and mortality were studied in the Eglinton Valley, Fiordland National Park, New Zealand. Mohua on the valley floor (380 m a.s.l.) bred from early October until March, though birds at higher altitude in the Eglinton and elsewhere started later. In low altitude areas, most pairs raised two broods a year, but […]

Predation by ermine and longtailed weasels on duck eggs

Of 263 upland duck eggs that failed due to predation, 38 lost eggs to weasels (generally over several days) and 27 of the 38 failed only because of the weasels. Weasels also took eggs from at least 5 of 20 nests that lost 1-7 eggs before the rest hatched. Damage to nest minimal. 12 of […]
