Der Steinschmaetzer Oenanthe oenanthe als Brutvogel auf den Azoren


, : Der Steinschmaetzer Oenanthe oenanthe als Brutvogel auf den Azoren. Limicola 20(4): 195

A suspected breeding pair of Northern Wheatears Oenanthe oenanthe was observed on a pasture in the Caldeira on Corvo at the end of May. The female flew into a hole in a stone wall. After approx. one minute the bird left the hole, while the male remained in the area. A check brought to light nesting material deep in the hole. Two further males were in the area, one of which began shortly to sing. The birds had very probably bred in the crater in 2006. The observations imply at least a breeding attempt. Apart from a historic breeding occurrence in the same location, which is evaluated in the relevant literature as hardly credible, there is no previous breeding record of the species on the Azores. Further studies, above all to clarify if the birds belong to the subspecies leucorhoo, are planned for spring/summer 2007.
