SESAW: Survival Estimates in Southern African Weavers

2010-02-01 (44)

This project is continuing to progres well and has been running for 5 months. The study aims to estimate survival rates of weavers in different parts of southern Africa, and relies on ringers ringing and recapturing weavers. The most ringed weaver species is now the Southern Masked Weaver (985) although it has a low recapture rate (5.6%). In second place is the Southern Red Bishop (820 ringed). The Spectacled Weaver has the highest recapture rate (36%). Read more here.
