snowbunting nestlings

11 July 2009 18:00

We have seen a snowbunting nest in the cliff under the airport. Oebele and Janwillem confirmed that the nest contains almost fledging snowbuntings. Six hours later, I go with them for a check, but the tide is high. Oebele gets a suit and carries me and Janwillem over the deepest parts of the coast.

Janwillem holds the ladder and I climb to the top. Five young snowbuntings try to hide, but my arm is just long enough.

The snowbuntings are really tiny compared with geese.
Together with Olga Dolnik, I have developed an interest in small parasites (coccidioses) in snow buntings. Olga has found and named a new species. Now, we want to study the diurnal release of coccidia. In the temperate region, songbirds do this mainly in the afternoon. How will this vary in constant light?
