Abstract

Site occupancy of migrating and breeding icterine warblers was studied with respect to unoccupied randomly chosen sites in a willow and poplar mixed forest along the Danube in Hungary. Multivariate discriminant analysis revealed four different zones in the ordination diagram: exclusive breeding zone, exclusive migrating zone, overlapping zone, and an unused zone. They were separated according to foliage cover and tree height. Tree species composition mostly affects habitat use through physiognomy. There was a partially overlapping, but clear difference in habitat selection between the migrating and the breeding birds. -Authors
