Avian Use of Sheyenne Lake and Associated Habitats in Central North Dakota

Annotated Species Accounts


In the following annotated list, the taxonomic order follows that of the AOU check-list (1957), except that the arrangement of shorebird species follows Jehl (1968). Current accepted nomenclature follows the check-list, as amended (AOU 1973, 1976). The status of 175 species recorded in the study area is briefly summarized. Maximum counts, dates of observation, limited data on clutch or brood size, and habitat occupancy are included. Population estimates of breeding birds not provided in Table 7 are presented here. Several observations by Audubon National Wildlife Refuge personnel are provided. All dates are 1980, except as specifically indicated.
