Nestling growth and parental provisioning of Tufted Puffins (Fratercula cirrhala) on Triangle Island, British Columbia

Tufted Puffin (Fratercula cirrhata) Science Article 1 abstract I studied the reproductive performance of tufted puffins (Fratercula cirrhata) on TriangleIsland, British Columbia during two years when reproduction was successful. Completereproductive failures are common for this population. I report on the timing of breeding, nestling growth, fledging behaviour, nestling diet, and parental provisioning, and discuss the […]
