First record of Kirtland’s Warbler from the Dominican Republic and additional bird observations
Non-systematic searches for Kirtland’s Warbler (Dendroica kirtlandii) were made in the Dominican Republic during 5-18 March 1985. Here we describe the first confirmed record of Kirtland’s Warbler from the Dominican Republic. ...
Linking breeding and wintering grounds of Bicknell's Thrushes using stable isotope analyses of feathers
Previous studies have shown that natural abundance of deuterium (D), and to a lesser extent, in feathers of migrant songbirds in North America can be used to infer geographic origins of molt. We used that approach to ...
A winter distribution model for Bicknell’s Thrush (Catharus bicknelli), a conservation tool for a threatened migratory songbird
Conservation planning and implementation require identifying pertinent habitats and locations where protection and management may improve viability of targeted species. The winter range of Bicknell’s Thrush (Catharus ...
Assessing conservation status of resident and migrant birds on Hispaniola with mist-netting
We analyzed temporal trends in mist-net capture rates of resident (n = 8) and overwintering Nearctic-Neotropical migrant (n = 3) bird species at two sites in montane broadleaf forest of the Sierra de Bahoruco, Dominican ...
Ancient differentiation in the single-island avian radiation of endemic Hispaniolan chat-tanagers (Aves: Calyptophilus)
The simple geographic structure of island systems often makes them tractable for studies of the patterns and processes of biological diversification. The Calyptophilus chat-tanagers of Hispaniola are of general evolutionary ...
Additional notes on the wintering status of Swainson's Warbler in the Dominican Republic
[English] We report the third and fourth records of Swainson’s Warbler (Limnothlypis swainsonii) from Hispaniola. All four records have involved mist-netted birds in montane broadleaf forests of Sierra de Bahoruco in the ...
Modeling spatial variation in winter abundance to direct conservation actions for a vulnerable migratory songbird, the Bicknell's Thrush (Catharus bicknelli)
[English] The winter range of the Bicknell's Thrush (Catharus bicknelli), a globally vulnerable Nearctic–Neotropical migratory songbird, is restricted to the Greater Antilles. Most birds occur on Hispaniola, where the ...
The composition of wintering bird communities in an agricultural landscape of the Northwestern Dominican Republic
Hispaniola, the second largest and most topographically complex island in the Antilles of the Caribbean, is home to a wide variety of habitats for resident birds as well as overwintering migrants from North America. Over ...
Ecological reflections on the wading birds of the Dominican Republic : report of a survey conducted in the summer of 1987
[English] During a short visit to a number of wetlands in the Dominican Republic on the island of Hispaniola, we sighted thirteen species of wading birds.
