Egg size in the least sandpiper calidris minutilla on sable island nova scotia canada



Egg size in the least sandpiper calidris minutilla on sable island nova scotia canada



Ornis Scandinavica 10(1): 10-16



The least sandpiper was studied on Sable Island, Canada, in 1975 and 1976. Culmen length and egg measurements are greater there than in northern Manitoba. Egg dimensions vary greatly among females, and egg size varies slightly with female size. Egg size in initial and replacement clutches does not differ systematically. Egg length tends to increase slightly over the laying sequence. The significance of constant clutch size and low variation in egg size within clutches of shorebirds is discussed.
