Detectability, nest-site selection, and nest success of the Western Snowy Plover at inland breeding sites in the midwest

Metadata Updated: December 11, 2019

Throughout much of its North American distribution, a decline in the number of Western Snowy Plover has been detected and, based on limited observations over the past 25 years, a decline of breeding pairs is suspected throughout inland breeding sites east of the Rocky Mountains. The observed population decline has been hypothesized to be the result of breeding, wintering, and migratory habitat loss. In response to a suspected decline in population size, the species has been designated by multiple state and federal agencies as a species of concern.

Nest visits were conducted throughout the species' range during the 2006 breeding season, and the success of nests, under varying conditions such as extreme temperature and precipitation, threat of predation, threat of human disturbance, and threat of flooding were analyzed using randomization, a re-sampling technique.

The authors explore their findings and offer recommendations for best management practices.
