Nesting success of native and introduced forest birds on the island of Kaua‘i [Journal of Avian Biology]

par Frédéric Magné - publié le

Forests of the Hawaiian archipelago are a global hotspot for conserving avian diversity and contain among the world’s most imperiled species. Demographic studies are necessary to determine primary causes of Hawaiian forest bird population declines. We conducted research on the nesting success of multiple bird families on the island of Kaua‘i, allowing us to investigate the importance of factors related to breeding biology on forest bird declines at a community scale. Our study included two Hawaiian honeycreepers, ‘anianiau Magumma parva and ‘apapane Himatione sanguinea, a native monarch flycatcher, Kaua‘i ‘elepaio Chasiempis sclateri, and one introduced species, Japanese white-eye Zosterops japonicus.
