Breeding biology of greater sheathbill, Chionis alba (Charadriiformes) at South Shetland Islands, Antarctica



Rivista Italiana di Ornitologia 63(1): 33-40



The breeding biology of Greater Sheathbill, Chionis alba, was studied at South Shetland Islands between 1988 and 1991. Timing of the main breeding events is given together with breeding habitat characteristics, clutch size, chicks growth (weight, culmen, tarsus and wing length), and breeding success.
