This work focused on monitoring the reproductive phenology of the chaffinch Fringilla coelebs africana for two successive seasons (2016 and 2017) in the mountains of the El Kala National Park (North East Algeria). We searched for nests in the tree stratum or by direct observation of breeding pairs carrying building materials from mid-March to the e...

... 2) are located in the Brabtia area and the third is located in the cork oak forest, upstream from the northern shore of Lake Oubeira. The most recent fires at the first two stations occurred in 2000, while a fire at the site of the third station occurred in 2008. The study stations have a mixed habitat, consisting of a monospecific tree stratum ( fig. 2), composed mainly of Quercus suber, with an average height of 7 m. The undergrowth is mainly composed of Phillyrea augustifolia, Pistacia lentiscus, Mirtus communis, Rubus ulmifolius, Calycotome villosa, Crataegus monogyna and Erica arborea, with a height between 0.5 m and 2 ...

In this current study, we examine the abundances and breeding phenology of three sympatric grebes (little, great crested and black-necked grebes) in Dayet El Ferd. These grebes were observed during all the period (2011-2018) in this wetland, except in September when the great crested grebe leaves the region. The abundances of these three grebes sho...

... The failure rate of all these hatchings is associated with external or internal factors, resulting from the breeding area of the species. Ramdani, Kouidri, Ouakid, Houhamdi (2019) reported that, the hatching failures of eggs in birds are due to egg infertility, nest vandalism and nest predation (for grebes the main predators are snakes Natrix maura). ...

These grebes were observed during all the period (2011-2018) in this wetland, except in September when the great crested grebe leaves the region. The abundances of these three grebes show a significant difference. In 2017, the total number of 71 nests was measured. The mean clutch size was 5.23 ± 1.49 eggs per nest. The highest number of eggs per nest was ten eggs, and most nests contained three eggs (N=18)
... The chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs Linnaeus, 1758) is a common insectivorous bird and a principal contributor to forest ecosystem communities of the temperate climate zone (Browne, 2004;Amar et al., 2006;Baillie et al., 2006;Domokos & Domokos, 2016;Ramdani et al., 2019).

... It is also a migrant of global conservation concern (Bern Convention) and studies on the foraging ecology of the species will defini-tely assist in its conservation. It has been already revealed that habitat conditions of the chaffinch are crucial for the successful breeding and stability of its population in forests of England (Whittingham et al., 2001;Macleod et al., 2004), Turkey, Germany (Bergen & Abs, 1997;Batary et al., 2014), Sweden (Felton et al., 2016), Romania (Domokos & Domokos, 2016), Spain (Moreno-Rueda & Pizarro, 2009;Peris & Montelongo, 2014) and North East Algeria (Ramdani et al., 2019). The role of artificial light and noise for the finches when they search for food has also been studied (Quinn et al., 2006;Kempenaers et al., 2010). ...

The сhaffinch (Fringilla coelebs Linnaeus, 1758; Passeriformes, Fringillidae) is one of the most colourful forest species of birds living in Europe, West Asia and North Africa. The diet of this species was studied as a contribution to the conservation of the population of this species in transformed forests of the northeastern part of Ukraine. Four forest ecosystems were studied: three model sites in oak forests, transformed under intensive recreation pressure, and one model site in a pine-oak forest. A total of 39 invertebrate taxa, dominated by Insecta (93.0%) were found. The orders Coleoptera (32.6%) and Lepi-doptera (63.5%) prevailed in the diet of finch nestlings, the highest number of taxa (52.3-76.2%) was represented by phyto-phages. The phytophagous species also constituted the majority of the consumed prey items (44.0-55.6%). Environmental conditions provided an important effect on the diet structure. The most favourable foraging conditions for the species were found in protected natural areas. According to the analysis, the finch foraging efficiency was similar in all the studied sites. The highest biodiversity indices were found in a protected area of Homilshanski Forests National Nature Park. Results of the research have indicated the crucial role of Fringilla coelebs in the population management of potentially dangerous agricultural pests.

Cette nouvelle livraison de nos ‘Eléments de bibliographie ornithologique marocaine’ regroupe une sélection d’articles traitant de l’avifaune du Maroc. Parmi ceux-ci, nous avons distingué, comme dans les livraisons précédentes, ceux traitant spécifiquement de ce pays de ceux de portée plus générale mais concernant aussi le Maroc. Un résumé informatif suit certains d’entre eux, en particulier lorsque le titre n’exprime pas de façon évidente le lien avec le Maroc. Un troisième paragraphe présente une sélection de travaux récents relatifs à d’autres pays proches (Espagne et Iles Canaries, Portugal, Libye, Tunisie, Algérie et Mauritanie en particulier), en lien direct avec l’avifaune marocaine.
