Nocturnal foraging by artificial light in three Caribbean bird species

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

I discuss observations of opportunistic use of artificial light for feeding in the dark by the native White-tailed Nightjar (Caprimulgus cayennensis), the long-established Cattle Egret (Bubulcus ibis), and the introduced Carib Grackle (Quiscalus lugubris) in Curaçao, Dutch Caribbean. The observations demonstrate avian adaptability to anthropogenic ecosystem changes.
