Hivernage de l’Erismature à tête blanche (Oxyura leucocephala) en Algérie

New data on the wintering of White-headed Ducks Oxyura leucocephala in Algeria

Abstract:

Winter census of the White-headed Duck in the wetlands where this species may occur allowed us to update the numbers present in winter in this country. A certain stability in winter numbers (around 1,000 individuals) was observed. Within the 240 censused sites, only some 20 harboured the species. The highest numbers were counted in the wetlands of Northeastern Algeria. In the west, increasing numbers were detected.
