The overall nest predation rate across all species was 36% and was lowest in the five most common ground-nesting passerines
(27% across species) and highest in mallards (50%) and the four most common above-ground and shrub-nesting species (44% across species) (Fig.
Blood parasites of passerine
birds from central Spain.
Melyrid beetles (Choresine): a putative source for the batrachotoxin alkaloids found in poison-dart frogs and toxic passerine
This is the first release program for a passerine
that has successfully incorporated all of the following techniques: collection of wild eggs, artificial incubation and hand-rearing, captive-breeding, and release and subsequent breeding of the released birds in native habitat.
The section on Non Passerine
birds helps me know what plants and commercial foods are needed for my own backyard bird feeding/habitat program.
ABSTRACT [as written by Author]: To more effectively manage remaining native grasslands and declining populations of prairie passerine
birds, linkages between disturbance regimes, vegetation, and bird abundance need to be more fully understood Therefore, I examined bird-habitat relationships on northern mixed-grass prairie at Lostwood National Wildlife Refuge in northwestern North Dakota .

Are summit metabolism and thermogenic endurance correlated in winter-acclimatized passerine
The breeding period of this species is synchronised with the autumn flux of migratory passerines
, which fly over the colonies and constitute its main food source.
Alden Miller stated that 315 passerine
bones had been recovered, but that only 169 were identifiable, of which he identified 94 (1932).
