Abstract:

Over the last decade, the Glossy Ibis has staged a come-back in Algeria after an absence lasting almost a century. The breeding was recorded in the year 2002 and in the period 2003-2008 the breeding population has been monitored at four sites across the wetland complex of Numidia, north-east Algeria. In order to increase our knowledge of the causes underlying fluctuations in the dynamics of local colonies, a banding scheme of Glossy Ibis chicks was started in 2008, for the first time in North Africa. A total of 72 chicks of a c.100 breeding pairs estimated in three distinct colonies were banded.
