Oystercatcher (Haematopus moquini) chick fatality due to dogs

  • Dane M Paijmans

Abstract

African Black Oystercatcher chick fatalities occur due to a number of different factors. These include wave action, wind-driven sand storms, and predation by birds and wild mammals. The anthropogenic causes are related to excessive site disturbance which reduces parental foraging ability and more direct fatalities as a result of unrestrained dogs.
