NBR 73: 119-123. Bridget E. Olson, Kimberly A. Sullivan, Adrian H. Farmer, Marbled Godwit migration characterized with satellite telemetry, The Condor, Volume 116, Issue 2, 30 April 2014, Pages 185–194, https://doi.org/10.1650/CONDOR-13-024.1. The area of “crisscross” overlap occurred in the midcontinental USA (42–47°N, 94–100°W) during both migration periods (Figures 1 and 2). When the tide is in, they roost. We considered 6) poor-quality locations of LC A, B, and Z only if these locations were redundant with previous or subsequent locations and if they were biologically plausible. Our goals were to characterize the migration strategy of Marbled Godwit populations and to determine migratory connectivity of major breeding, staging, and wintering areas. Two were aggressively territorial in Sheridan Co 23 May 2010. Hudsonian Godwits are only migrants through the state, while Marbled Godwits are summer breeding residents, so during the heart of summer, identification is easy (it's a Marbled Godwit). 2006), annual survivorship (Studds and Marra 2005), body condition (Bearhop et al. Marbled Godwits tagged in eastern Canada traveled significantly longer distances on their southbound migration than godwits tagged in either Utah or Georgia. You have requested a machine translation of selected content from our databases. Birds of the Rainwater Basin, Nebraska. If you are at an office or shared network, you can ask the network administrator to run a scan across the network looking for misconfigured or infected devices. Gratto-Trevor Olson, B.E., K.A. Migration routes of the Georgia-tagged birds overlapped or crossed over those of the eastern Canada–tagged birds. When it leaves the prairies, the Marbled Godwit goes to coastal regions and becomes quite gregarious. Southern Great Plains Region. Rastreamos 23 individuos de Limosa fedoa marcados con transmisores satelitales miniatura en Norte América (2006–2010). Bridget E. Olson, Kimberly A. Sullivan, Adrian H. Farmer "Marbled Godwit migration characterized with satellite telemetry," The Condor, 116(2), 185-194, (26 February 2014), Registered users receive a variety of benefits including the ability to customize email alerts, create favorite journals list, and save searches. These variations are starting points from which to examine how various aspects of migration may differentially affect the biology of distinct breeding subpopulations. © 2014 Cooper Ornithological Society The back is mottled and dark. Data are presented as mean ± SD (range, n). Farmer, R. I. G. 2006). The major winter ranges include the Atlantic, Pacific, and Gulf coasts of the USA and Mexico. Marbled Godwit has an unusual “criss-cross” migration pattern in the mid-continent of North America (Olsen et al 2014). Renken. The major winter ranges include the Atlantic, Pacific, and Gulf coasts of the USA and Mexico. Ducey, J.E. There was no significant difference between Canada and Georgia godwits in distance traveled to first southbound stopover (t7 = 1.1, P = 0.31). Solensky, Martin, Events or conditions at one point or time in the avian annual cycle can have carryover effects at subsequent locations or seasons. Instead, birds tagged on Akimiski Island in eastern Canada crossed the continent and wintered along the Gulf of California in Mexico. Each species account is written by leading ornithologists and provides detailed … Argos classifies the accuracy of each location. Departure and arrival dates and duration of stay (days) at 2 major stopover sites in the USA (BRMBR/GSL = Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge/Great Salt Lake; ND/SD Borderlands = North and South Dakota borderland area) by satellite-tagged Marbled Godwits. Stay tuned for future events! The Utah-tagged godwits from the midcontinental breeding population used Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge as a stopover. Additional telemetry studies of Marbled Godwits would further refine our understanding of migratory corridors and stopover strategies and functions, as well as how these patterns compare across years. We are grateful to the following individuals for assistance in the field: S. Brown, M. McGarvey, N. Atkins, J. Olson, S. Edler, R. Jacobson, K. Stopher, and T. Woodward. Marbled Godwits departing Akimiski Island, Nunavut, Canada, traveled southwest over Ontario, Canada, and continued over southwestern Minnesota, USA, to the first en-route stopovers in South Dakota, USA (n = 4), Nebraska, USA (n = 1), and Kansas, USA (n = 1; Figure 2). We established migratory connectivity across breeding, stopover, and wintering sites for the midcontinental North America and eastern Canada subpopulations of the Marbled Godwit. Marbled Godwits (Limosa fedoa) breed in 3 disparate areas: The majority breed in the prairies of midcontinental North America, but there are also 2 small and widely separated tundra-breeding populations, 1 in eastern Canada and 1 on the Alaska Peninsula, USA. , and We tracked 23 Marbled Godwits equipped with satellite transmitters from sites in Utah, Mexico, Canada, and coastal Georgia during 2006–2010. L. ; Paul and Manning 2002, Shuford et al. B. K. They often sleep by standing on one leg and tucking their bill into their body (see picture below).[4]. Bruner, L., R.H. Wolcott, and M.H. In Cherry Co, two pairs, one in agitated territorial flight, were near Wood Lake, Cherry Co 17 Jun 2006 (Mollhoff 2006), and a pair was in a wet meadow hayfield in northern Cherry Co 22 Jun 2008. Gudmundsson The 2020 Godwit Days Spring Migration Bird Festival, usually held in April, was postponed due to the Coronavirus (COVID19) pandemic. The findings and conclusions in this article are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the views of the U.S. A straight line was assumed to delineate migration routes between actual location points. Recent breeding records began in 1990, when adults were defending young in Dawes Co (Grzybowski 1990). M. R. No significant difference in arrival date at breeding sites was found between the Utah and Georgia birds (t5 = 0.62, P = 0.55; the sample size for Akimiski Island, Canada, birds arriving at this breeding site was too small for analysis). 2006), and sexual selection (Reudink et al. After departing Bear River/Great Salt Lake, most southbound godwits followed overland routes through Utah, Nevada, USA, and Arizona, USA (n = 6). Create a new folder below. Marra, Shorebirds have some of the most interesting bill shapes and the Marbled Godwit is no exception with its swordlike bill.
