Abstract:

Interactions of a Savannah Sparrow Passerculus sandwichensis with a pair of nesting Lapland Longspurs Calcarius lapponicus are described. Of particular interest are the numerous attempts by the Savannah Sparrow at feeding the nestlings and nest sanitation in presence of the Lapland Longspurs. This type of behaviour is considered an example of misdirected behaviour resulting from a disturbance in the reproductive cycle of the Savannah Sparrow.
