Title
Linking fluctuations in rainfall to nonbreeding season performance in a long-distance migratory bird, Setophaga ruticilla
Author(s): Colin E. Studds, Peter P. Marra
Abstract: Research on long-distance migratory birds has yielded some of the strongest evidence that shifts in climate are changing ecosystem processes. Much of this work has focused on understanding whether rising temperatures on temperate breeding grounds are..[more]..

Title
Modeling Seasonal Interactions in the Population Dynamics of Migratory Birds
Author(s): MICHAEL C. RUNGE AND PETER P. MARRA
Abstract: UNDERSTANDING THE POPULATION DYNAMICS of migratory birds requires understanding the relevant biological events that occur during breeding, migratory, and overwintering periods. The few available population models for passerine birds focus on breeding..[more]..

Title
TAXONOMIC RELATIONSHIPS AMONG THE AMERICAN REDSTARTS
Author(s): KENNETH C. PARKES
Abstract: In recent years certain bird taxonomists have indulged in what might be described as a veritable orgy of genus-lumping. Small genera, particularly monotypic genera, must, it seems, be somehow combined with one another, or shoehorned into larger gener..[more]..

Title
Prevalence of Hematozoa in Overwintering American Redstarts
(Setophaga ruticilla): No Evidence for Local Transmission

Author(s): Mary C. Garvin, Peter P. Marra, and Sarah K. Crain
Abstract: We examined American redstarts (Setophaga ruticilla) for protozoan blood parasites on their wintering grounds to determine whether transmission of these parasites occurs prior to spring migration. A total of 73 blood smears from 37 birds were examine..[more]..

Title
DELAYED PLUMAGE MATURATION AND THE
PRESUMED PREALTERNATE MOLT IN AMERICAN REDSTARTS

Author(s): SIEVERT ROHWER, WILLIAM P. KLEIN, JR., AND SCOTT HEARD
Abstract: The American Redstart (Setophaga ruticilla) is one of about 30 sexually
dichromatic North American passerine species in which males exhibit a
delayed plumage maturation (Rohwer et al. 1980). Males in their first winter
and in their first potential..[more]..

Title
Fat stores of American redstarts Setophaga ruticilla arriving at
northerly breeding grounds

Author(s): Smith, R. J. and Moore,
Abstract: Many long-distance passerine migrants arrive with more fat stores than necessary to
have reached their northerly breeding grounds. Researchers have argued for adaptive
advantages associated with arriving with ‘surplus’ migratory fat, including incr..[more]..

Title
Continent-wide variation in feather colour of a migratory songbird in relation to body condition and moulting locality
Author(s): D. Ryan Norris et al.
Abstract: Understanding the causes of variation in feather colour in free-living migratory birds has been challenging owing to our inability to track individuals during the moulting period when colours are acquired. Using stable-hydrogen isotopes to estimate m..[more]..

Title
Age-specific differences in habitat selection by the American Redstart
Author(s): HENRY F. HOWE
Abstract: The American Redstart (Setophaga ruticilla) is unusual among parulids because
males retain immature plumage until after the first breeding season. On the basis
of this character, age-specific differences in habitat occupation have been reported
(F..[more]..

Title
AN INVESTIGATION OF TERRITORIAL BEHAVIOR IN THE
AMERICAN REDSTART UTILIZING RECORDED SONGS

Author(s): ROY A. ICKES AND MILLICENT S. FICKEN
Abstract: The territorial behavior of the American Redstart (Setoph_a rz~ticilla) has been studied by Hickey (1940)) and in greater detail by Ficken (1962). Hickey has described this species as being “highly territorial,” defending an area by song and formaliz..[more]..
