Title
Interspecific feeding of a Great Grey Shrike (Lanius excubitor) fledgling by adult Yellowhammers (Emberiza citrinella)
Author(s): R. Drozdz, M. Hromada and P. Tryjanowski
Abstract: On 25 May 2003, near the village Budy (Biebrza Marshes, East Poland), interspecific feeding
of a Great Grey Shrike (Lanius excubitor) fledgling by adult Yellowhammers (Emberiza citrinella) was
observed…[more]..

Title
Foraging habitat selection by yellowhammers (Emberiza citrinella)
nesting in agriculturally contrasting regions in lowland England

Author(s): Antony J. Morri, Mark J. Whittingham, Richard B. Bradbury
Abstract: Fine-scale habitat use by yellowhammers (Emberiza citrinella) searching for food to provision nestlings was compared in three
agriculturally contrasting regions of lowland England. Log-linear modelling was used to test for signi?cant overall variati..[more]..

Title
Use of field margins by foraging yellowhammers
Emberiza citrinella

Author(s): Allan J. Perkins, Mark J. Whittingham, Antony J. Morris, Richard B. Bradbury
Abstract: Some agri-environment schemes promote the creation and management of a variety of non-crop habitats on farmland in
the UK, yet there has been relatively little monitoring to assess how species, particularly birds, use these habitats. The present
st..[more]..

Title
Indirect effects of pesticides on breeding yellowhammer
(Emberiza citrinella)

Author(s): Antony J. Morris, Jeremy D. Wilson, Mark J. Whittingham, Richard B. Bradbury
Abstract: Intensification of agriculture is believed to have caused declines in farmland bird populations. One of the key elements of
recent agricultural intensification is the increased use of pesticides. However, studies elucidating relationships between
i..[more]..

Title
Habitat selection by yellowhammers Emberiza citrinella on lowland farmland at two spatial scales: implications for conservation management
Author(s): Mark J. Whittingham, Ruth D. Swetnam, Jeremy D. Wilson, Dan E. Chamberlain and Robert P. Freckleton
Abstract: Yellowhammer Emberiza citrinella populations have declined rapidly in the UK over recent decades, and a clear understanding of their habitat requirements is important to help inform conservation schemes. We aimed to disentangle and rank the effects o..[more]..

Title
Effects of predation risk on diurnal mass dynamics and foraging routines of yellowhammers (Emberiza citrinella)
Author(s): Ineke T. van der Veen
Abstract: Theoretical models predict that when having fat reserves is costly in terms of predation risk, birds should decrease their levels of fat reserves in response to increased predation risk. I performed an experiment in which yellowhammers were exposed t..[more]..
