Characterization of avipoxviruses from wild birds in Norway. (1/217)

Avipoxviruses from different geographic regions of the world have been characterized to study their genetic and biological properties, but so far, no such work has been performed on Norwegian isolates. Lesions suggestive of avian pox, found on a Norwegian wild sparrow (Passer domesticus) and wood pigeon (Palumbus palumbus), were obtained in 1972 and 1996, respectively. Histologically, these lesions were demonstrated to be characteristic of poxvirus infections and the poxvirus was observed using an electron microscope. The resulting viruses were propagated in chicken embryo fibroblast cells. Restriction fragment length polymorphism of genomes from 2 Norwegian isolates and fowl pox vaccine strain, generated by BamHI, revealed a high degree of heterogeneity among the isolates. The profiles of avipoxviruses isolated from wild birds were clearly distinct from each other and also to the fowl poxvirus strain. Furthermore, chickens experimentally infected with pigeon poxvirus had higher antibody titers and extensive lesions compared to other isolates. This may suggest that pigeon poxvirus is more virulent than the other isolates.  (+info)

Migratory sleeplessness in the white-crowned sparrow (Zonotrichia leucophrys gambelii). (2/217)

Twice a year, normally diurnal songbirds engage in long-distance nocturnal migrations between their wintering and breeding grounds. If and how songbirds sleep during these periods of increased activity has remained a mystery. We used a combination of electrophysiological recording and neurobehavioral testing to characterize seasonal changes in sleep and cognition in captive white-crowned sparrows (Zonotrichia leucophrys gambelii) across nonmigratory and migratory seasons. Compared to sparrows in a nonmigratory state, migratory sparrows spent approximately two-thirds less time sleeping. Despite reducing sleep during migration, accuracy and responding on a repeated-acquisition task remained at a high level in sparrows in a migratory state. This resistance to sleep loss during the prolonged migratory season is in direct contrast to the decline in accuracy and responding observed following as little as one night of experimenter-induced sleep restriction in the same birds during the nonmigratory season. Our results suggest that despite being adversely affected by sleep loss during the nonmigratory season, songbirds exhibit an unprecedented capacity to reduce sleep during migration for long periods of time without associated deficits in cognitive function. Understanding the mechanisms that mediate migratory sleeplessness may provide insights into the etiology of changes in sleep and behavior in seasonal mood disorders, as well as into the functions of sleep itself.  (+info)

Comparative analysis of the song of the Rufous-collared Sparrow Zonotrichia capensis (Emberizidae) between Campinas and Botucatu, Sao Paulo State, Brazil. (3/217)

The regional dialects or regiolects of the Rufous-collared Sparrow Zonotrichia capensis were compared between Campinas (47 degrees 06'W-22 degrees 90'S) and Botucatu (48 degrees 44'W-22 degrees 88'S), Sao Paulo State, Southeastern Brazil. Songs of 88 individuals from thirteen localities were recorded. Sonograms showed that two areas presented more homogeneous songs, forming two regiolects. In 11 localities most individuals shared the same song type. At the other two localities, they sang up to 5 different song types. This occurs at the boundaries of the regiolects, and was also where individuals singing more than one song type were found. Similarities between song types were not related to geographic distance between the respective singers. A comparative analysis showed similarities in these regiolects with song of populations from Northeastern Brazil.  (+info)

Plasticity of the avian song control system in response to localized environmental cues in an equatorial songbird. (4/217)

A striking feature of the vertebrate brain is its plasticity. In high-latitude vertebrates, seasonal plasticity of the brain is driven by ubiquitous photoperiod cues and therefore is highly predictable and synchronous across extensive geographic ranges. A pronounced example of seasonal brain plasticity occurs in the nuclei that regulate song behavior in songbirds. These nuclei are larger in breeding than in nonbreeding birds. In the tropics, photoperiod varies little annually, and other environmental cues important for breeding can show considerable local geographic variability. We investigated whether localized patterns of seasonal breeding in tropical birds are associated with brain plasticity. We studied two populations of rufous-collared sparrows (Zonotrichia capensis) that breed, only 25 km apart, on the equator but out of phase with each other. We measured gonadal activity and the size of song nuclei (high vocal center, robust nucleus of the arcopallium, and area X) during each population's breeding and nonbreeding periods. Breeding males had larger song nuclei and greater gonadal activity than did nonbreeding birds. This plasticity was associated with local environmental cues, such that the two populations exhibit asynchronous changes in brain structure. These results demonstrate the sensitivity of the brain and its ability to use a variety of environmental cues to coordinate seasonal plasticity and reproduction.  (+info)

The effect of energy reserves on social foraging: hungry sparrows scrounge more. (5/217)

Animals often use alternative strategies when they compete for resources, but it is unclear in most cases what factors determine the actual tactic followed by individuals. Although recent models suggest that the internal state of animals may be particularly important in tactic choice, the effects of state variables on the use of alternative behavioural forms have rarely been demonstrated. In this study, using experimental wind exposure to increase overnight energy expenditure, we show that flock-feeding house sparrows (Passer domesticus) with lowered energy reserves increase their use of scrounging (exploiting others' food findings) during their first feed of the day. This result is in accordance with the prediction of a state-dependent model of use of social foraging tactics. We also show that scrounging provides less variable feeding rates and patch finding times than the alternative tactic. These latter results support the theoretical assumption that scrounging is a risk-averse tactic, i.e. it reduces the risk of immediate starvation. As the level of energy reserves predicts the use of social foraging tactics, we propose that selection should favour individuals that monitor the internal state of flock mates and use this information to adjust their own tactic choice.  (+info)

Balancing food and predator pressure induces chronic stress in songbirds. (6/217)

The never-ending tension between finding food and avoiding predators may be the most universal natural stressor wild animals experience. The 'chronic stress' hypothesis predicts: (i) an animal's stress profile will be a simultaneous function of food and predator pressures given the aforesaid tension; and (ii) these inseparable effects on physiology will produce inseparable effects on demography because of the resulting adverse health effects. This hypothesis was originally proposed to explain synergistic (inseparable) food and predator effects on demography in snowshoe hares (Lepus americanus). We conducted a 2 x 2, manipulative food addition plus natural predator reduction experiment on song sparrows (Melospiza melodia) that was, to our knowledge, the first to demonstrate comparable synergistic effects in a bird: added food and lower predator pressure in combination produced an increase in annual reproductive success almost double that expected from an additive model. Here we report the predicted simultaneous food and predator effects on measures of chronic stress in the context of the same experiment: birds at unfed, high predator pressure (HPP) sites had the highest stress levels; those at either unfed or HPP sites showed intermediate levels; and fed birds at low predator pressure sites had the lowest stress levels.  (+info)

Species-typical songs in white-crowned sparrows tutored with only phrase pairs. (7/217)

Modern theories of learned vocal behaviours, such as human speech and singing in songbirds, posit that acoustic communication signals are reproduced from memory, using auditory feedback. The nature of these memories, however, is unclear. Here we propose and test a model for how complex song structure can emerge from sparse sequence information acquired during tutoring. In this conceptual model, a population of combination-sensitive (phrase-pair) detectors is shaped by early exposure to song and serves as the minimal representation of the template necessary for generating complete song. As predicted by the model, birds that were tutored with only pairs of normally adjacent song phrases were able to assemble full songs in which phrases were placed in the correct order; birds that were tutored with reverse-ordered phrase pairs sang songs with reversed phrase order. Birds that were tutored with all song phrases, but presented singly, failed to produce normal, full songs. These findings provide the first evidence for a minimal requirement of sequence information in the acoustic model that can give rise to correct song structure.  (+info)

Variation in virulence of West Nile virus strains for house sparrows (Passer domesticus). (8/217)

The observation of avian mortality associated with West Nile virus (WNV) infection has become a hallmark epidemiologic feature in the recent emergence of this pathogen in Israel and North America. To determine if phenotypic differences exist among different WNV isolates, we exposed house sparrows (Passer domesticus) to low passage, lineage 1 WNV strains from North America (NY99), Kenya (KEN), and Australia (KUN; also known as Kunjin virus). House sparrows inoculated with the NY99 and KEN strains experienced similar mortality rates and viremia profiles. The KUN strain elicited significantly lower-titered viremia when compared with the other strains and induced no mortality. This study suggests that natural mortality in house sparrows due to Old World strains of WNV may be occurring where the KEN strain occurs.  (+info)

N2 - West Nile virus (WNV) is a zoonotic pathogen which is maintained in an enzootic cycle between mosquitoes and birds; humans, equines, other mammals and some bird species are dead-end hosts. Lineage 1 WNV strains have predominated in Europe since the 1960s. However, in 2004 lineage 2 strains emerged in Hungary and Russia, respectively, spreading since then to a number of neighbouring countries (e.g., Austria, Greece, Italy, Serbia and Romania). Wild bird mortality is a hallmark of North American WNV outbreaks, a feature uncommon in Europe. This study aimed to compare the course of infection of lineage 1 (NY99) and lineage 2 (Austria/2008) WNV strains in ...
The effects of length of caging and reserpine administration on the in vivo recording of uptake and retention of idoine-131 by the thyroid glands of House Sparrows (Passer domesticus) were investigated. The uptake of iodine-131 was lower in birds caged for shorter periods (2 and 10 days) as compared to those caged for longer periods (90 and 100 days) prior to testing. The release of radioiodine from the thyroid area as measured by logarithmically plotted release slopes seems depressed in birds held only 2 days prior to testing. Release in birds held for 10 days did not differ appreciably from that in birds held 90 days prior to testing. Uptake and retention of iodine-131 did not differ significantly between birds given reserpine and those given a placebo, either in a group of birds tested 2 days or one tested 90 days after capture ...

The genomics era has produced an arsenal of resources from sequenced organisms allowing researchers to target species that do not have comparable mapping and sequence information. These new non-model organisms offer unique opportunities to examine environmental effects on genomic patterns and processes. Here we use comparative mapping as a first step in characterizing the genome organization of a novel animal model, the white-throated sparrow (Zonotrichia albicollis), which occurs as white or tan morphs that exhibit alternative behaviors and physiology. Morph is determined by the presence or absence of a complex chromosomal rearrangement. This species is an ideal model for behavioral genomics because the association between genotype and phenotype is absolute, making it possible to identify the genomic bases of phenotypic variation. We initiated a genomic study in this species by characterizing the white-throated sparrow BAC library via filter hybridization with overgo probes designed for the chicken,

One of the continents best-studied and most familiar songbirds, the White-throated Sparrow is found at some season throughout much of North America south of the tree line and principally east of the Rocky Mountains. To many its distinctive whistled song is synonymous with the northern wilderness. During migration and throughout its winter range, this species is a common visitor at feeding stations. It breeds primarily in the boreal coniferous and mixed forest and, a short-distance migrant, winters mainly in the southeastern U.S. A habitat generalist, it tends to occur in shrubby edges or early successional stages or openings in the forest, nesting and foraging for seeds and insects on or near the ground.. Throughout its extensive range the White-throated Sparrow shows no subspecific variation. However, it exhibits plumage polymorphism (white-striped and tan-striped morphs - see color photos) in both sexes, most obvious in the breeding season, associated with a difference in an autosome. These ...

Ornithology advances the fundamental scientific knowledge of birds and of broad biological concepts through studies of bird species.
In this paper, we describe spatial variation in the demography of the Song Sparrow Melospiza melodia. Long-term population studies of birds have generally considered only single sites in optimal habitat, but recent theory has shown the value of taking spatial variation in population dynamics into account. In this theory, collections of local populations in habitat patches connected by dispersal are defined as metapopulations. We review metapopulation models briefly and then use these ideas in a study of the Song Sparrow. Sparrows were studied on islands of varying size and degree of isolation from the North American continent. For analysis, these islands are grouped into three areas. Sparrows on the isolated Mandarte Island usually reproduced and survived well over 17 years but suffered from catastrophic mortality in some winters. After such events, the population recovered quickly without much immigration. Sparrows on smaller islets near Mandarte also survived and reproduced well during 4 ...
Avian malaria parasites are a highly diverse group that commonly infect birds and have deleterious effects on their hosts. Some parasite lineages are geographically widespread and infect many host species in many regions. Bird migration, natural dispersal, invasive species and human-mediated introductions into areas where competent insect vectors are present, are probably the main drivers of the current distribution of avian malaria parasites. A total of 412 and 2588 wild house sparrows (Passer domesticus) were captured in 2012 and 2013 in two areas of the Iberian Peninsula (central and southern Spain, respectively). Genomic DNA was extracted from blood samples; parasite lineages were sequenced and identified by comparing with GenBank and/or MalAvi databases. Thirteen Plasmodium lineages were identified in house sparrows corresponding to three major clades. Five individuals were infected by the African Plasmodium lineage PAGRI02, which has been proposed to actively circulate only in Africa. Despite the
The diminutive house sparrow (Passer domesticus) is perhaps one of the earliest birds you can remember from your childhood. Their nests dotted almost every house in the neighbourhood as well as public places like bus bays and railway stations, where they lived in colonies and survived on food grains and tiny worms. Many bird watchers and ornithologists recall with fondness how the house sparrow gave flight to their passion for observing birds. The association between humans and the house sparrow dates back to several centuries and no other bird has been associated with humans on a daily basis like the house sparrow. It is a bird that evokes fond memories and has thus found mention in folklore and songs from time immemorial. Unfortunately, the house sparrow is now a disappearing species. But like all other plants and animals which were once abundant and are now facing an uncertain future, their numbers are also declining across their natural range. Certainly, there is no one single reason for the ...
White-throated sparrows (Z. albicollis) are short-hop migrants that winter primarily in the south eastern United States and breed in the north eastern United States and in Canada. We caught white-throated sparrows that were overwintering in Mississippi in January (N=18) as well as sparrows that were migrating through southern Ontario in both autumn (N=36) and spring (N=17) [described previously by McFarlan et al. (McFarlan et al., 2009)]. These sparrows were caught in the morning with mist-nets, and killed immediately after capture by cervical dislocation under brief (,1 min) isoflurane anaesthesia; a sample of the left pectoralis muscle was immediately removed and stored in liquid nitrogen until transfer to a -80°C freezer (for quantitative PCR, qPCR). Muscle mass was not measured in these sparrows. Autumn sparrows were aged according to the degree of skull ossification (Pyle, 1997).. Another set of white-throated sparrows was captured during autumnal migration in southern Ontario and kept in ...
The effect of fenitrothion exposure on birds was examined by measuring aerobic metabolism, blood hemoglobin content, plasma cholinesterases, and body weight for up to 21 d postdose. Peak metabolic rate was measured in a flight chamber in three-dose groups of house sparrows (Passer domesticus; 100 mg/kg = high, 60 mg/kg = medium, 30 mg/kg = low) and one-dose groups of zebra finches (Taeniopygia guttata; 3 mg/kg) and king quails (Coturnix chinensis; 26 mg/kg). Aerobic metabolism was measured during 1 h of exposure to subfreezing thermal conditions in low-dose house sparrows and king quails (26 mg/kg). Fenitrothion had no effect on metabolic rate during cold exposure or on blood hemoglobin at any time. By contrast, aerobic performance during exercise in sparrows was reduced by 58% (high), 18% (medium), and 20% (low), respectively, 2 d postdose. House sparrows (high) had the longest recovery period for peak metabolic rate (21 d) and plasma cholinesterase activity (14 d). House sparrows (high) and treated
We found that migratory adult white-crowned sparrows had relatively more and a higher density of new hippocampal neurons than adult non-migratory white-crowned sparrows. This difference does not appear to be global, as the number and density of doublecortin-positive cells in an adjacent region (HA) did not differ among subspecies. This is consistent with the results of Pravosudov et al. [12] in that, in these same individuals, migratory sparrows had more total hippocampal neurons than non-migratory sparrows but with comparable absolute hippocampal volumes. Thus, taken together, adult migratory sparrows had a higher density of both new and total number of neurons in the hippocampus compared with adult non-migrants. Similarly, Cristol et al. [11] found that migratory juncos had a higher density of hippocampal neurons than non-migrants, although they did not address the age of these neurons. Previous studies have not documented the mechanism underpinning these differences, but our results suggest ...
With the advent of next generation sequencing, new avenues have opened to study genomics in wild populations of non-model species. Here, we describe a successful approach to a genome-wide medium density Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) panel in a non-model species, the house sparrow (Passer domesticus), through the development of a 10 K Illumina iSelect HD BeadChip. Genomic DNA and cDNA derived from six individuals were sequenced on a 454 GS FLX system and generated a total of 1.2 million sequences, in which SNPs were detected. As no reference genome exists for the house sparrow, we used the zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata) reference genome to determine the most likely position of each SNP. The 10 000 SNPs on the SNP-chip were selected to be distributed evenly across 31 chromosomes, giving on average one SNP per 100 000 bp. The SNP-chip was screened across 1968 individual house sparrows from four island populations. Of the original 10 000 SNPs, 7413 were found to be variable, and 99% of ...

To evaluate transmission dynamics, we exposed 25 bird species to West Nile virus (WNV) by infectious mosquito bite. We monitored viremia titers, clinical outcome, WNV shedding (cloacal and oral), seroconversion, virus persistence in organs, and susceptibility to oral and contact transmission. Passeriform and charadriiform birds were more reservoir competent (a derivation of viremia data) than other species tested. The five most competent species were passerines: Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata), Common Grackle (Quiscalus quiscula), House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus), American Crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos), and House Sparrow (Passer domesticus). Death occurred in eight species. Cloacal shedding of WNV was observed in 17 of 24 species, and oral shedding in 12 of 14 species. We observed contact transmission among four species and oral in five species. Persistent WNV infections were found in tissues of 16 surviving birds. Our observations shed light on transmission ecology of WNV and will benefit ...

Behaviors associated with breeding are seasonally modulated in a variety of species. These changes in behavior are mediated by sex steroids, levels of which likewise vary with season. The effects of androgens on behaviors associated with breeding may in turn be partly mediated by the nonapeptides vasopressin (VP) and oxytocin (OT) in mammals, and vasotocin (VT) in birds. The effects of testosterone (T) on production of these neuropeptides have been well-studied; however, the regulation of VT receptors by T is not well understood. In this study, we investigated steroid-dependent regulation of VT receptor (VTR) mRNA in a seasonally breeding songbird, the white-throated sparrow (Zonotrichia albicollis). We focused on VTR subtypes that have been most strongly implicated in social behavior: V1a and oxytocin-like receptor (OTR). Using in situ hybridization, we show that T-treatment of non-breeding males altered V1a and OTR mRNA expression in several regions associated with seasonal reproductive ...
In Canadas boreal forest, the impact of timber harvesting on bird populations is complicated, differing by species, region, forest type, harvest prescription, length of time after harvest, and so on. Forest harvesting may cause changes in bird species composition, diversity and abundance, and these changes can be positive, neutral or negative, depending on the species and the types of habitat that it uses.. For example, early successional species such as mourning warbler (Oporornis philadelphia), chestnut-sided warbler (Dendroica pensylvanica) and white-throated sparrow (Zonotrichia albicollis) benefit from harvesting, as they prefer a younger forest. But some forest-dependent species, such as brown creeper (Certhia Americana), boreal chickadee (Poecile hudsonica) and ovenbird (Seiurus aurocapilla) are sensitive to the loss of old forest habitat.. Other species, such as woodpeckers, require dead or dying trees for nesting and feeding, while others require the cavities created by woodpeckers in ...
Graduate research will be expected to combine traditional behavioral ecology studies with next-generation sequencing technology to examine the evolution of polymorphism in the white-throated sparrow. Student will conduct extensive laboratory work as well as participate in field based data collection during the breeding season. This species exhibits a clear link between phenotype and genotype, making it an ideal system in which to pinpoint the determinants of complex sexual and parental behavior. We have amassed 29 years of detailed data on this species making it possible to identify the genetic, epigenetic, and environmental bases of behavior. Morphs of the white-throated sparrow provide a unique opportunity to study intraspecific genomic differences, which have resulted from two separate, yet linked evolutionary trajectories. Such results can transform our understanding of the evolution of genomes ...

Home ranges for Gambels quail on our study site were strongly associated with riparian habitat and averaged 954 acres, and ranged in size from 403 ha to 1,651 acres.. Along riparian habitat, Gambels quail are often found near dense stands of fourwing saltbush, wolfberry, mesquite, Greggs catclaw, and other woody riparian vegetation. Gambels quail also utilize riparian habitats that have been invaded by salt cedar, although these habitats generally lack diversity in food items for quail.. Nesting typically begins in April and lasts until June or July. Males seem to have no role in incubation, but maintain strong interest as they remain close to the nest to defend it from potential predators. Females generally construct a bowl-shaped nest lined with small twigs, grass, leaves, and feathers. Eggs are dull white, smooth and often contain brown spots. Clutch sizes average between 10 and 14 eggs. During dry years clutch sizes are often reduced and may contain as few as five eggs. Occasionally, ...
Gambels Quail: Familiar to most Arizonans, the Gambels quail is the states most popular small gamebird species. Mostly associated with mesquite, Gambels quail inhabit Arizona from the northwest to the southeast corners below 6,000 feet in elevation. Other plants associated with this top-knotted bird are saguaro, prickly pear, jojoba, scrub oak, catclaw acacia, and brittlebush ...

Kyle Wellband and I departed for the field on May 30, 2008. Since that time, weve only had two rain days (this is one of them and I am currently typing from the public library in Edmundston). Weve been lucky enough to get a lot of atlassing done and have been able to point count nearly every day (weve completed point counts in 16 squares so far and hope to get a lot more done by the July 3rd deadline). There have been many highlights along the way-far too many to list them all here but Ill mention a few. Kyle has developed a true talent for finding White-throated Sparrow nests and has already found three nests-two with eggs and one with young. Weve also found a Spotted Sandpiper nest with four eggs, a Hermit Thrush nest with eggs and a few Eastern Phoebe, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker and Hairy Woodpecker nests as well. Weve also found Cliff Swallow colonies (one right in the parking lot of Irvings Deersdale camp) and also a likely Chimney Swift breeding and roosting site (a big hollow tree in ...
Population genetic structure and intrapopulation levels of genetic variation have important implications for population dynamics and evolutionary processes. Habitat fragmentation is one of the major threats to biodiversity. It leads to smaller population sizes and reduced gene flow between populations and will thus also affect genetic structure. We use a natural system of island and mainland populations of house sparrows along the coast of Norway to characterize the different population genetic properties of fragmented populations. We genotyped 636 individuals distributed across 14 populations at 15 microsatellite loci. The level of genetic differentiation was estimated using F-statistics and specially designed Mantel tests were conducted to study the influence of population type (i.e. mainland or island) and geographic distance on the genetic population structure. Furthermore, the effects of population type, population size and latitude on the level of genetic variation within populations were ...

A new study has shown how differentiation of a single gene can change the display of aggressive behavior in the white-throated sparrow.
|span||i|Culex pipiens|/i| serves as the endemic vector of West Nile virus (WNV) in eastern North America, where house sparrows (HOSP, |i|Passer domesticus|/i|) serve as a reservoir host.

After the chicken, the House Sparrow is the most widely distributed bird species in the world, occurring on all continents except Antarctica and on most human-inhabited islands. Although its Latin name is Passer domesticus, it is certainly not domesticated. In fact, it is widely regarded as a pest species and is consequently not protected in most of its extensive range.
A unique study of the white-throated sparrow has identified a biological pathway connecting variation in the birds aggression and parenting behaviors in the wild to variation in their genome.
His urge to attack could be triggered even when he was not hungry, and when triggered it was energetic and persistent. With little or no apparent prior coaching, he attacked crows only after watching them intently as if to determine whether or not they were watching him. When they were watching him or looked at him, he did not attack, nor did he continue an attack when his potential victim, such as a crow, looked up, indicating that it had seen him approaching. Nevertheless, he vigorously pursued fully feathered young blue jays and white-throated sparrows that were aware of him and trying to escape, although their flight was clumsy. Without obvious prior experience, he instantly attacked the very first injured squirrel that he saw, whereas healthy noisy ones were only watched and never attacked. Although I often saw birds noisily mobbing directly in front of him (within one-half to one meter) I did not see him make a single attempt to capture any of them. It was not lack of hunger that kept him ...
After reading the application and interagency comments, here is what I discovered.. In March, the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife updated its list of species of special concern.. This lists species suffering a reduction of numbers, loss of habitat and/or major impacts from development.. Within the proposed project footprint, a total of 21 species are endangered or of special concern. They include the wood thrush, veery, scarlet tanager, American redstart, black and white warbler, chestnut-sided warbler, yellow warbler, white-throated sparrow, northern parula, barred owl, eastern towhee, prairie warbler and olive-sided flycatcher.. Also included are the hoary and silver-haired bats. New studies show migratory or tree-roosting bats are attracted to insects that are drawn by the lighting and heat of the structures housing the wind-turbine generating components, causing an increase in bat strikes.. The bald eagle, Northern harrier and peregrine falcon were observed during the survey. ...
The Sonoran desert is home to this distinctive bird. Gambels Quail is often abundant near desert streams and waterholes, with coveys walking to the water in the morning and evening, giving a variety of clucking and crowing notes. As cities have grown in the desert southwest, these birds have adapted to life in the surrounding suburbs, coming into back yards to eat grain scattered for them. At night, coveys of Gambels Quail roost in bushes or low trees.
Learn how to identify Song Sparrow, its life history, cool facts, sounds and calls, and watch videos. A rich, russet-and-gray bird with bold streaks down its white chest, the Song Sparrow is one of the most familiar North American sparrows. Dont let the bewildering variety of regional differences this bird shows across North America deter you: its one of the first species you should suspect if you see a streaky sparrow in an open, shrubby, or wet area. If it perches on a low shrub, leans back, and sings a stuttering, clattering song, so much the better.
The Eurasian Tree Sparrow is actually a species of Old World sparrow, or sparrow that occurs in Europe and Asia. It is closely related to house sparrows, and not so closely related to our own American tree sparrow. In 1870, a group of 12 of these birds were imported from Germany and released in Lafayette Park in St. Louis, to increase the diversity of the local bird life. All of the Eurasian Tree Sparrows in the United States today are descended from these twelve birds. What makes them different from the house sparrow, which is an Old World species that has expanded its range to include the whole of the US, is that the Eurasian Tree Sparrow population is confined to the St. Louis area, with their range extending somewhat into western Illinois and up into southeast Iowa. This is the only place in the U.S. they occur. Many of the local birders see these birds frequently, but for anyone else in the country, they are not seen at all. People from all over the U.S. come to St. Louis to see this little ...
Another other field of my research seeks to understand how organisms balance their energy allocation into growth, self-maintenance, and reproduction. These life history trade-offs are fundamental in biology, but still not well understood. In particular I find it interesting to investigate the relationships between growth, body sizes and telomere dynamics at early age, and how these early experiences might interfere with the organisms lifespan and lifetime reproductive success.. The main study system for my research has been an archipelago located at Helgeland in northern Norway consisting of 18 island populations of House sparrows (Passer domesticus) where the spatial structure of the archipelago form a metapopulation. In addition we conduct experimental studies in several other insular populations along the coast of northern Norway. Since 1993 the House sparrow project has collected an impressive data set that provides unique opportunities for in-depth studies within eco-evolutionary ...

Melospiza georgiana (Swamp Sparrow) is a species of birds in the family Passerellidae. It is associated with freshwater habitat. It is found in the Neotropics and the Nearctic. Individuals can grow to 19.2 g. Reproduction is dioecious. Swamp Sparrow relies on flight to move around.. ...
This species has an extremely large range, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion (Extent of Occurrence ,20,000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). The population trend appears to be stable, and hence the species does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (,30% decline over ten years or three generations). The population size has not been quantified, but it is not believed to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population size criterion (,10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be ,10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern ...
Vehrencamps work also suggests that males that are most successful are those that share many song types with their territorial neighbors. Song sparrows, for example, can learn songs only within a narrow time period restricted to the first few months after fledging, which means that males must learn neighborhood songs quickly to facilitate successful territorial negotiations.. Song sparrows are very restricted learners, so the dominant birds that acquire territories within their natal area share more song types with their neighbors and survive better, explained Vehrencamp, who observed that birds with a low degree of song-sharing spend more time fighting with neighbors and are rarely seen the next breeding season.. Vehrencamp also studies the banded wren in Central America. This species has a longer learning period, up to a year or more, so all birds in the neighborhood share a large fraction of their song types. Males get up early, and sing vigorously with frequent song-type matching in ...
Most birds are either diurnal or nocturnal. The Manx shearwater is one of the very few that regularly perform such normal activities as feeding, hunting, and flying by day, and other activities, such as homing to the nest, by night. The retinal structure of the Manx shearwater is compared with that of a diurnal passerine (house sparrow) and a diurnal sea-bird (fulmar petrel), in order to determine what features are common to sea-birds and what, if any, may be specific adaptations to vision over a wide range of light intensity. Both sea-birds have a linear area centralis but lack a fovea. The rods of the dark-adapted fulmar and shearwater show great difference of shape from those of the light-adapted. The shearwater has more rods at the area centralis, a larger rodparaboloid in the dark adapted retina, and a greater ratio of total number of visual cells to ganglion nuclei than has the fulmar.. ...
We examined variability in yolk hormone levels among songbird species and the role of yolk steroids as a mechanism for enhanced exploitation of hosts by the parasitic brown-headed cowbird Molothrus ater. Within-clutch variation in yolk steroids has been found in several avian species in single species studies, but few comparisons have been made among species. We found a large range of differences in yolk testosterone among the seven passerine species examined, with significant differences between those at the high end (song sparrow Melospiza melodia, red-winged blackbird Agelaius phoeniceus, and house sparrow, Passer domesticus) and those at the low end (eastern phoebe Sayornis phoebe, and house finch Carpodacus mexicanus). We also found that the testosterone level in cowbird eggs was intermediate in relation to host species levels and was significantly lower than that in three common cowbird hosts (song sparrow, redwinged blackbird, and house sparrow), but not significantly different from three others.
article{8f49d55d-b5f5-4f7b-bd69-f3ec250ab558, abstract = {Intercellular and covalently bound lipids within the stratum corneum (SC), the outermost layer of the epidermis, are the primary barrier to cutaneous water loss (CWL) in birds. We compared CWL and intercellular SC lipid composition in 20 species of birds from desert and mesic environments. Furthermore, we compared covalently bound lipids with CWL and intercellular lipids in the lark family (Alaudidae). We found that CWL increases in birds from more mesic environments, and this increase was related to changes in intercellular SC lipid composition. The most consistent pattern that emerged was a decrease in the relative amount of cerebrosides as CWL increased, a pattern that is counterintuitive based on studies of mammals with Gaucher disease. Although covalently bound lipids in larks did not correlate with CWL, we found that covalently bound cerebrosides correlated positively with intercellular cerebrosides and intercellular cholesterol ...
Since the time of Darwin, biologists have wondered whether birdsong and music may serve similar purposes or have the same evolutionary precursors. Most attempts to compare song with music have focused on the qualities of the sounds themselves, such as melody and rhythm. Song is a signal, however, and as such its meaning is tied inextricably to the response of the receiver. Imaging studies in humans have revealed that hearing music induces neural responses in the mesolimbic reward pathway. In this study, we tested whether the homologous pathway responds in songbirds exposed to conspecific song. We played male song to laboratory-housed white-throated sparrows, and immunolabeled the immediate early gene product Egr-1 in each region of the reward pathway that has a clear or putative homologue in humans. We found that the responses, and how well they mirrored those of humans listening to music, depended on sex and endocrine state. In females with breeding-typical plasma levels of estradiol, all of the

The tree sparrow is a predominantly seed and grain eating bird which feeds on the ground in flocks, often with house sparrows, finches, or buntings. It eats weed seeds, such as chickweeds and goosefoot, spilled grain,[5] and it may also visit feeding stations, especially for peanuts. It will also feed on invertebrates, especially during the breeding season when the young are fed mainly on animal food; it takes insects, woodlice, millipedes, centipedes, spiders and harvestmen.[48] Adults use a variety of wetlands when foraging for invertebrate prey to feed nestlings, and aquatic sites play a key role in providing adequate diversity and availability of suitable invertebrate prey to allow successful chick rearing throughout the long breeding season of this multi-brooded species. Large areas of formerly occupied farmland no longer provide these invertebrate resources due to the effects of intensive farming, and the availability of supplementary seed food within 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) of the nest-site ...

Many factors could influence repertoire size and function. Here, we provide a review of the descriptions of vocal repertoires of New World jays and a unifying terminology for function of their vocalizations. We summarized 19 different functional types of vocal behaviour shared by at least two species, for review purposes. Comparing the 14 studied species, we also classified vocalizations into four major classes defined a priori: Social Integration, Conflict Resolution, Predator-related, and Breeding. Cooperative breeding, as well as group size, are related not only to repertoire size, but to how species allocate their vocalizations into functional classes. We discuss the tendencies of Conflict Resolution and Social Integration and the possibility of the existence and implications of a trade-off between those functional classes. We identified gaps in the current knowledge on vocalizations of the studied species, and emphasize the importance of empiric evidence of vocalization function in the New

In spring practice this year, Gray struggled to get the right timing with his receivers, many of whom werent used to playing much with the first-team offense. DaJon McKnight, Grays only receiver to surpass 16 catches (51) or 190 yards (760), is done with his eligibility. But Gray has developed chemistry with a pair of freshman receivers who werent around in the spring. Former Hopkins High School standout Andre McDonald is an athletic 6 feet 3, 210 pounds and built a lot like McKnight. Jamel Harbison from Charlotte, N.C., has surprised Gray the most with his hands and speed. Gray said Harbison will probably have his hands on the ball a lot and compared him to Marcus Jones, who started last year as a freshman before a season-ending knee injury. Jamel will be one of the most explosive players on this team, Gray said. Hes a guy who most people might not know about. But hes been doing a great job this summer. Everyone already knows about Andre McDonald. He has the size and speed to go up ...

My suspicion is that while Bruce has elite straight line speed he doesnt have the agility, awareness, instincts to play as an OLB some in addition to DE. If this is the case then will Bruce only ever be a situational pass rusher? I dont necessarily feel that is bad thing because a situational pass rusher who can get us 10+ sacks a year is still a very valuable player. If Bruce can put on 10+ pounds of muscle I could see him rotating with Red depending on situation. At that point we need a true 4 down LEO/Elephant to replace Clemons(I would like to see Clemons work load cut back to extend his career or possible even trade him if we find the right Elephant replacement). I would really like to see someone that is good at rushing the passer but can also play off the line of scrimmage. This can allow that player to stay on the field all downs as well as make it even harder to defend as that player could drop in coverage or rush the passer. More looks=more confusion for the opposing offense ...

There are three widely separated species of skimmer. The North & South American bird is the Black Skimmer (above left) and it has a dark bill tip in all plumages and a black hindneck in breeding plumage; it is also a bit larger than Old World taxa. The African Skimmer (above right in a flight shot by Greg W. Lasley) is very similar but adults have a yellow tip to the red or red-orange bill. The Indian Skimmer Rynchops albicollis is rather like the African bird but nesting adults have a white nuchal collar. Alas, these differences break down in the non-breeding season when all skimmers have white collars around the neck, and young skimmers of any species can have a dusky tip to the bill. The Indian Skimmer is classified as vulnerable and the total population is only about 10,000 birds (Zusi 1996); it is restricted to the Indian subcontinent with much smaller numbers locally in southeast Asia. The African and Indian Skimmers, and the Black Skimmer in South America (two difference races) are ...

The results are pretty unambiguous. Pairs of song sparrows that heard predator calls laid fewer eggs than pairs that heard non-predators. Of the eggs laid by pairs who heard predator calls, fewer hatched, and of those hatched chicks, fewer survived fledge. Just the continuous, threat of predators-predators that were never visible-reduced the number of chicks the sparrows fledged.. The reasons for the reduced offspring are apparent from other behavioral observations. Birds in the predator-call treatment were perpetually on high alert, as measured by flight initiation distance, the distance up to which a researcher could approach the nest before the birds took flight. Sparrows in the non-predator treatment let researchers get about 120 meters from the nest before taking off; sparrows in the predator treatment wouldnt tolerate humans within twice that distance. In the predator treatment, sparrows spent less time sitting on their eggs, and visited to feed their chicks less frequently. Not ...

Peter Scartabello, cognome tipicamente italiano, è luomo che si nasconde dietro al moniker Sky Shadow Obelisk e alla musica assai particolare contenuta in Beacon, disco di debutto del polistrumentista americano dopo un paio di EP. La proposta del musicista del Rhode Island non è quanto di più facile potrete ascoltare: è necessaria infatti una certa predisposizione allo sperimentalismo sonoro e avere anche timpani adatti ad accettare il cantato alieno del mastermind statunitense. Beacon consta di cinque brani, alcuni dei quali parecchio lunghi (si sfiorano addirittura i 20 minuti con Velus Temporum). Il disco si apre con le atmosfere inquietanti, ma aliene si addice di più, della title track: una melodia stralunata e totalmente dissonante (leggasi Ved Buens Ende) su cui si instaura la voce psicotica del buon Peter, che propone una timbrica pulita ma di assai difficile approccio in quanto appare palesemente stonato.

El nu metal (de vegades també anomenat aggro metal o nü metal) és un subgènere musical sorgit a mitjans dels anys 90 i influenciat sobretot per estils com el grunge, el metal alternatiu, el funk, el rap i alguns subgèneres del heavy metal, com el thrash metal i el groove metal. La música nu metal engloba latmosfera el ritme i la Textura musical per sobre de la melodia i la complexa instrumentació. Moltes vegades, les cançons de nu metal utilitzen riffs rítmics i sincopats, tocats amb distorsionades guitarres elèctriques afinades en rangs baixos per a crear una música més fosca que la tradicional. Les bandes que van donar origen al gènere nu metal van ser Korn (amb el seu àlbum homònim lany 1994) i els Deftones amb el seu disc del 1995, . Es diu nu metal, perquè ve de new metal (nou metal) per voler presentar una barreja de diversos gèneres ja esmentats al principi de larticle.

2) Why do organisms age? This is one of the big, unsolved questions in biology, because it is unclear how a process that ultimately decreases fitness can persist evolutionarily, and why species do not evolve to live longer. Many theories have been put forward to explain from an evolutionary perspective why organisms change with age, but it is likely that many factors contribute to the phenomenon. One factor that can strongly affect selection pressure for longevity has, however, not received much attention: the transgenerational effects of senescence. It has been known for nearly a century that a parents age can affect her offsprings, and even her grand-offsprings fitness, but it is not clear how this affects population dynamics and the evolution of ageing and longevity. We studied the effects of parental and grand-parental age on their offsprings lifespan, reproductive success, physiology and genetics in a wild and a captive population of house sparrows.. ...

I recall running the Ottawa marathon a few years back. It was a sunny, spectacular day. The route took us through Rockcliffe Park, the wealthiest area of the city, home to several Embassies and diplomats from all over the world. Breathtaking homes. My legs felt strong, I had just met a very interesting guy named Doug and we ran and chatted for the first several miles. As Doug and I paced each other comfortably, this guy kept passing us, and then hed show up behind us somehow, and slowly make his way by again. What was he doing? While Doug regaled us with stories of his all night 100 mile ultra marathon runs, we took note of the passer guy again. Every so often, he would veer off course and spring up onto the manicured greenery of these majestic properties and reach up and high five the people watching from their front lawns. He would then drop to his knees in front of their Better Homes and Gardens flower beds and inhale deeply the aromatic buffet of olfactory bliss. He would then rise, smile ...
