Entry ID: usgsbrdpwrc0014

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Three endangered species for which cowbird parasitism has been identified as
a major factor in population decline have incubation periods > 14 days:
Black-capped Vireo, Least Bell's Vireo, and Kirtland's Warbler. Twenty-five
neotropical migrant species parasitized by cowbird have incubation periods of
13 days or longer, including Wood Thrush, Mountain Bluebird, Black-tailed
Gnatcatcher, Swainson's Warbler, Yellow-throated Vireo, Solitary Vireo, and
Hutton's Vireo.

Research Showcase site for the appropriate data set

Purpose: To assess the effect of brood parasitism on neotropical migrants.
