The movement and survival of Star Finches Neochmia ruficauda subclarescens in the Wyndham Region of Western Australia

This study uses capture-recapture data from four years of mistnetting in the Wyndham district of Western Australia to investigate the movement, longevity and survival probability of the Star Finch Neochmia rufi cauda subclarescens. Results show that Star Finches should be described as locally mobile rather than sedentary; juvenile survival during the study period was low and diff ered between years; and, the maximum time between banding and recapture was 3.4 years. The impact of rainfall and fi re on survival are also discussed.
