Title
Evidence for sexual partitioning of foraging mode in Western Sandpipers (Calidris mauri) during migration
Author(s): Kimberley J. Mathot and Robert W. Elner
Abstract: Migrating Western Sandpipers, Calidris mauri (Cabanis, 1857), observed feeding at an intertidal stopover site on the Fraser River delta, British Columbia, shifted their foraging mode from surface-pecking to probing over a 3- week period in April an..[more]..

Title
Incubation capacity and clutch size determination in two calidrine sandpipers: a test of the four-egg threshold
Author(s): Brett K. Sandercock
Abstract: Several groups of vertebrate taxa, including shorebirds, are unusual in that they produce a ®xed number of offspring. The aim of this study was to examine whether the incubation capacity of western sandpipers (Calidris mauri) and semipalmated sandpip..[more]..

WESTERN SANDPIPERS (CALIDRIS MAURI) DURING THE NONBREEDING SEASON: SPATIAL SEGREGATION ON A HEMISPHERIC SCALE
Author(s): SILKE NEBEL et al
Abstract: The nonbreeding distribution ofWestern Sandpipers (Calidris mauri)was documented using 19 data sets from 13 sites along the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of the Americas. Western Sandpipers showed latitudinal segregation with regard to sex and age. F..[more]..

Title
Functional association of bill morphology and foraging behaviour in calidrid sandpipers
Author(s): S. NEBEL et al
Abstract: Foraging behaviour in birds co-varies with bill morphology. Shorebirds exhibit pronounced inter- and intra-specific variation in bill length and shape as well as in foraging behaviour. Pecking, or feeding on epifaunal intertidal invertebrates, is a..[more]..

Demography and Behavior of Western Sandpipers (Calidris mauri) Breeding on the Yukon-Kuskokwim River Delta, Alaska
Author(s): James Matthew Johnson
Abstract: I conducted demographic and behavioral studies of Western Sandpipers (Calidris mauri) breeding on the Yukon-Kuskokwim River Delta, Alaska (1998-2005). In chapter one, I estimated apparent annual survival (product of true survival and site fidelity) w..[more]..

CONSERVATION PLAN FOR THE WESTERN SANDPIPER
Author(s): Guillermo Fernandez, Nils Warnock, David B. Lank, and Joseph B. Buchanan
Abstract: The Western Sandpiper (Calidris mauri) is a small shorebird species that nests in coastal areas of western Alaska and Siberia. Most Western Sandpipers spend the non-breeding season at Pacific coastal sites. The combination of a restricted breeding ra..[more]..
